Home Page of Butterflies at Home ... All about those amazing creatures that inhabit our home gardens!

A familiar resident in many home environments and backyards is a small orange and brown butterfly. Many look alike and are hard to identify ... but the "Crescents" are fun to have around and watch!

The Phyciodes family consists of a large number of these small butterflies.

Their markings vary, but most are orange and brown, with various white spots and streaks.

Included below are photos of the more commonly found Crescents in the United States.
