From: Mimicry in viceroy butterflies is dependent on abundance of the model queen butterfly

Fig. 1

Florida viceroy butterflies occur without their queen butterfly models. a Viceroy abundance is greater in northern Florida, while b queen abundance is high in southern Florida with occasional individuals found in northern Florida, c Carolina willow (Salix caroliniana), a prominent viceroy larval host plant, is found in high abundance across Florida; d white twinevine (Funastrum clausum), a prominent queen larval host plant, is found in high abundance in southern Florida, but is nearly absent from the northern half of Florida. In this and subsequent figures, open circles indicate those sites with low-queen abundance and filled circles indicate those sites with high queen abundance. Shading reflects extrapolation based on inverse distance weighting
