Sandia Hairstreak Butterfly – Signed Fine Art Print


Information about the Sandia Hairstreak Butterfly:

The Sandia Hairstreak Butterfly is a species of butterfly native to North America. It has a fairly limited range and is a somewhat rare butterfly because of that. It is found in the yucca-agave desert in the Southwestern United States. It was discovered in 1959 by a member of the 4-H club. The butterfly is small - only 1 1⁄8 to 1 1⁄4 inches (2.9 – 3.2 centimeters) long. In both forms of adult and caterpillar the Sandia Hairstreak relies heavily on the plant Texas sacahuista (Nolina texana.) It lays it's eggs on the stalk, the caterpillar eats on the plant after hatching and the adult feeds on the nectar. It is the state insect of New Mexico.
