White Peacock (Anartia jatrophae)

In North Carolina, this is another rare stray from farther south (native to and breeding in FL) that has shown up a handful of times along the NC coast. I've seen them in FL, TX, and Peru.

Very rare in North Carolina, John Fussell found what appears to be a breeding population near the Pine Knoll Shores aquarium in 2017.
