Apodemia mormo langei, the Lange's metalmark butterfly, is an endangered North American butterfly. It is a subspecies of the Mormon metalmark and belongs to the family Riodinidae. The butterfly is endemic to California, where it is known from one strip of riverbank in the San Francisco Bay Area. A 2008 count estimated the total remaining population at 131 individuals.[1] Since 2011, this number has dropped to about 25–30.
Bio:
I grew up in California raised by a pair of nature-loving scientists. Thus far, my life has been filled with creativity through drawing, painting, and music, as well as an ever-growing appreciation for biology and the natural world. In 2013 I received a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from San Jose State University, and in 2016 completed the Natural Science Illustration program at the University of Washington in Seattle.
