The Common Buckeye is common all across Texas. You’ll often find it sitting on bare ground or paths. The males are territorial and you can often count on finding them on the same path over and over again.
The large clear markings make this a standout in most of Texas. There is a bit of variety on the underside of the wing. Sometimes the eyespots are distinct while other times they are not.
In south Texas, you will find its less common cousin, the Tropical Buckeye.
