The males and females are sexually dimorphic, which means they have different physical appearances. Only the male has the distinctive dog-head looking markings on the upper wings, whereas the female are mostly just a pale yellow with a single black spot on the upper wings. Adults of the species feed on flower nectar, and it it believed the insect tends to favor purple flowers. The California Dog-Face Butterfly is notoriously hard to photograph, as they are difficult to get close to and fly very fast. It was made the official state insect of California in 1972.
