family Longwings, subfamily Heliconiina , Gulf Fritillary (Agraulis vanillae)
Julia same as above except Julia (Dryas iulia) exceptionally variable: often brown or black with orange head, but some species mostly white with darker markings and another form is black except for broken whitish middorsal and spiracular stripes
