My first submission to the Butterflies and Moths of North America (BAMONA) project, this photograph of a Cloudless Sulphur Phoebis sennae feeding on a Camellia japonica, has been verified and accepted. The sighting details page is available at butterfliesandmoths.org.
According to their web site, the Butterflies and Moths of North America (BAMONA) project is an ambitious effort to collect and provide access to quality-controlled data about butterflies and moths for the continent of North America from Panama to Canada. The BAMONA project is based upon work previously supported by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center (1995-2003) and the USGS National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII) Program (2004-2011).
