  1. Gorgeous, what complicated patterns it has! Why the "blind" in the name? Is there a hidden 88 beneath? Posted 4 years ago
    1. I have no clue where the "blind 88" comes from, I got the name from butterfliesofamerica.com (and "rose beauty" from learnaboutbutterflies.com). It is in the same tribe as the Eighty-eight butterfly but it does not have any numerical patterns that I can distinguish, the topside is dark with a reddish-orange band, I have no photos though.
