Little Wood Satyr

Little Wood Satyr

Little Wood Nymph

The Little Wood Satyr, Megisto cymela, is quite common this year. It is best seen in grassy areas on the edges of forests. In Indiana, it can be common in June and July but the flight season seldom extends into August. Now is a good time to look for them. Last week, they were numerous at the site of our Butterfly Encounter, Today, July 18. I hope the torrential rains, which can be a mortality factor for butterflies, do not affect butterfly populations too adversely.
