These four presumed Mimosa Yellows Pyrisitia nise nelphe were part of a group of 6 or 7 that were nectaring on frogfruit on a ranch in Frio County near Pearsall, South Texas on August 4, 2004. The first thing that caught my eye was the confiding nature of all of them; I'm used to Euremas dashing off long distances when I get too close. With these bugs I could stick my len in their face and they hardly moved more than a few inches. The main feature that causes me to present them here is the total lack of the "two black spots" near the base of the hindwing, plus the general lack of underside markings. This was true for every one of this group. Also note that the top three (females?) lack a black spot in the forewing cell. Comments?:
