Fresh Sheet – August 8, 2015

Soon our Tropical Butterfly House will be flying two different species from the genus Anartia: Anartia fatima (Banded Peacock) which only live north of the Darien Peninsula of Panama through Central America and the Southern United States and Anartia amanthea (Scarlet Peacock), which only live south of the Darien Peninsula of Panama through South America and the West Indies. Except for a narrow band along the coast where these two species interbreed and hybridize, the two species do not migrate any further north or south. However, scientists have noticed that this zone of hybridization is shifting northward.
