Wild Indigo Dusky Wing - Erynnis baptisiae
The wild indigo duskywing is found in much of the eastern U.S. from New England south to northern Florida and South Dakota south to Texas.
The wild indigo duskywing is found in open woods, railroad beds, and on the sides of highways.
The male wild indigo duskywing perches on low shrubs and waits for a female. The female lays one egg at a time on the leaves of a host plant. The wild indigo duskywing produces 1-2 broods a year. The caterpillars from the second brood overwinter in piles of leaves.
