(Junonia [Precis] coenia)
Southern United States and north along the coasts to central California and North Carolina; south to Bermuda, Cuba, and Mexico
Larvae feed on plants from the Scrophulariaceaefamily including snapdragon (Antirrhinum) and toadflax (Linaria). Adults feed on nectar from aster, chickory, gumweed, peppermint, and other flowers.
Caterpillars and adults overwinter but only in the south. The markings or “eyespots” are probably used to scare away predators.
