White Peacocks (Anartia jatrophae) are true brush-foot butterflies. Upperside is white with light brown markings and a double row of light crescents at the margins. Forewing has one round, black spot; hindwing has two. Dry season (winter) form is larger and paler; wet season (summer form) is smaller and darker.

These insects are  a resident from Argentina north through Central America, Mexico, and the West Indies to South Texas and southern Florida. Migrates and temporarily colonizes to central Texas and coastal South Carolina. A rare wanderer to North Carolina, Missouri, Nebraska, and Kansas.

The habitat for the White Peacock Butterfly is open, moist areas such as edges of ponds and streams, along shallow ditches, weedy fields, parks.
