I usually see several each time I go to the NABA butterfly park. Have also had a couple in my backyard comming to my butterfly bait/fruit trays.

Saw at least 200 while I walked around in the back field at the ranch in San Isidro/TX in October 2006. Their larval host is noseburn so I assume there must be mass quantities of it growing wild out there!!! Just need to make the time to figure out what it looks like :o)
