ALL ABOUT BUTTERFLIES!
|What is a Butterfly?||Life Cycle||Butterfly Anatomy||Information Sheets||Glossary||Printables and Activities|
A vascular plant has specialized pipelines that carry water and nutrients around the plant. Club mosses, ferns, horsetails, gymnosperms, and flowering plants are vascular plants.
Veins are the rib-like tubes in insect wings (including butterflies and moths) that support the wings and bring nourishment to them.
Venation is the vein pattern in the wings of butterflies and moths.
The Viceroy butterfly (Limenitis archippus) is a brown and orange slightly-poisonous butterfly that is very similar to the Monarch; it is a Mullerian mimic of the poisonous Monarch. It can be distinguished from the Monarch by the black line that crosses its wings. Also, the undersides of its wings are quite similar to the topside (unlike the Monarch, whose underside is much lighter). It has a wingspan of 2.75 to 3 inches (7 to 7.5 cm). The Viceroy is found from Canada to Mexico. The caterpillar is olive green and brown with bristly tufts behind the head; it eats mostly willow and cottonwood. Classification: Family Nymphalidae.
Viviparous animals are born live and do not hatch from eggs. People are viviparous; butterflies and moths are oviparous, not viviparous.
