Distribution Data for Enyo ocypete
Large Map & Chart Report Errors About Maps
Distribution: Suggested by Heppner as a species straying into, but not breeding in, Florida. Tuttle (2007) mentions specimens from the Florida Keys and the possibility that they might be breeding there.
Similar Species: 7851 Enyo lugubris females lack the wide dark band at the base of the abdomen found in ocypete. Males lack the white patch along the inner margin of the hindwing. (See Bill Oehlke's species page for Enyo ocypete.) Hodges (1971) mentions that the dark labial palpi of ocypete will separate it from lugubris.
