Tropical Buckeye (Junonia evarete)

In the US, Tropical Buckeye can be found along the Mexican border. It also occurs in southern Florida where it is rare and local. There's much confusion in the field guides over the proper scientific name for this taxon. Recently it's been shown that J. genoveva is the mangrove feeder, not the species referred to as Tropical Buckeye shown on this page.
