Here's an actual photo of the undetermined Papilionid found near San
Benito, Cameron Co., TX on Nov. 1, 1998. Any help would be appreciated.
Apologies to anyone who receieved muliple copies. Mike

It is not a Papilionid, or even a butterfly - it is a dayflying moth of the
Uraniidae family! Urania leilus (I think). It is a Neotropical species and
is probably a migrant or stray.

cheers, Steve
