What are the butterflies seen around San Antonio recently?

Snout Butterflies migrated through San Antonio recently. This common name comes from the butterfly’s elongated mouth-parts that form a prominent snout. While still caterpillars, they feed on Hackberry trees. As adults, Snout Butterflies are attracted to fermenting fruit and wildflowers.

The Snout Butterfly is also known by the scientific names of Libytheana bachmanii or Libytheana carinenta.
