Common Mestra

Common Mestra

Mestra amymone

The Common Mestra is found primarily in South Texas but is an occasional stray throughout the state. I saw it with semi-regularity when I lived in San Angelo, Texas. It is a weak flier and tends to glide flat-winged.

It is white above with a pale orange border on the hind wing. Underneath, it is mostly pail orange with white bands.
