Bartram's Hairstreak Butterfly (Strymon acis bartrami)
The Bartram’s hairstreak is a small butterfly approximately 1 inch (in) (25 millimeters (mm)) in length with a forewing length of 0.4 to 0.5 in (10 to 12.5 mm) and has an appearance characteristic of the genus. Despite its rapid flight, this hairstreak is easily observed if present at any density as it alights often, and the brilliance of its grey underside marked with bold white postdiscal lines beneath both wings provides an instant flash of color against the foliage of its hostplant, pineland croton (Croton linearis). The Bartram’s hairstreak occurs only within pine rocklands that retain its only known hostplant, pineland croton.
