Description

The left-side individual, with a Cassius Blue from the LRGV for comparison.

I have a theory about IDing this species from Cassius Blue:

Note the arrangement of dark marks underlined in pink:

For Marine, the dark block in the fourth inter-veinal wedge (the wedge labeled with a green "4") is usually in-line with the outer three blocks; this individual Marine has a slight "uptick" in the 3rd inter-veinal block just before it meets the 4th, but the 4th inter-veinal block is still mostly in-line with the others.

For Cassius, the 4th inter-veinal block is sharply offset basally such that its upper/outer corner touches (or is separated from) the inner/lower corner of the 3rd inter-venial block.

I have been checking this feature for many years, and I feel that it is a very reliable means of distinguishing between the two taxa.

A totally remarkable aberrant. Seen on a butterfly field trip seminar I was leading with 9 people. ID is based on size (very small for greater frit), wing shape (round), and likelihood (normal ones very common in this meadow and the only fritillary we saw. There were a couple egleis on the walk in, but on rocky trail. This was in wet meadow which is mormon frit zone). I'm confident this was an aberrant mormon fritillary. A stunning one, too - top side and under

We came across several puddles that had hundreds of these floating in them in clumps, and some crawling nearby on wet leaves. Very cold day - temperature in the low 20s and very windy, and some of the other puddles we came across were frozen solid. Scooped some up to look at under magnification - I'll add more photos later.

Animation in third photo - some are spinning around in small eddies, but others can be seen actively crawling over wet leaves, especially in the upper-center and upper-right.
