Mourningcloak January 22, 2019 at 04:57PM

The common name of this species has been spelled in a variety of ways– "Morning Cloak", "Mourning Cloak" and "Morningcloak". The approved standardized common name (established by the Entomological Society of America) is none of these, but rather "Mourningcloak".

Medium-large butterfly, brown-black on dorsal surface with wide yellow borders. A row of blue spots occurs adjacent to the yellow border.
