The Great Spangled Fritillary Feeding on a Lantana Blossom - (Tennessee)
sp. Speyeria cybele
DID YOU KNOW: While adult butterflies feed on flower nectar, they often have a need for a host food plant which provides much needed nutrition for a butterfly's offspring. In the case of the Great Spangled Fritillary, it has a relationship with its larval host food plant, the Violet. In late-summer, the female Great Spangled Fritillary will lay her eggs on or near a Violet plant's leaves. With the onset of spring, the mature larva will emerge and feed at night on Violet leaves and flowers.
