More strongly mottled than other U.S. leafwings, usually with a reddish blush on the underside of the hindwing.
Grannybush [widely known as pineland croton] (Croton cascarilla)[widely known as Croton linearis).
This species is in danger of becoming extinct, because its rock pineland habitat in southern Florida and the Keys has largely disappeared and because of the misuse of anti-mosquito sprays, which kill these and other endangered butterflies, and subject the people of the area to toxic chemicals that endanger their health and that of their children. Some treat this butterfly as a subspecies of Tropical Leafwing.
