The Cockrell Butterfly Center and Wortham Giant Screen Theatre are closed for renovations.

Green Triangle Kite Butterfly

This dramatically colored, swift-flying butterfly, Graphium agamemnon, is not common in the Center, but its unusual iridescent green spots are very eye-catching.

This species is a member of the swallowtail family, and is related to our native Zebra swallowtail. The caterpillars of both species eat plants in the pawpaw family.
