The little metalmark butterfly is a North American species found in the
coastal plain of the southeast. The distinguishing feature of the metalmark
is the pewter colored bands on the outer wings. Almost all butterflies and
moths have pigment and structure on their wing scales that with the
slightest change of angle can appear metallic in color.
