The Atala, a butterfly once considered extinct 

Eumaeus a tala (Lycaenidae) was once considered extinct but a few small colonies are now known to exist as residents of North America only in the most southern part of Florida. It ranges to the Bahamas, where there are larger colonies, Cuba and the Isle of Pines.Habitats are subtropical brushy areas and hammocks, mostly in pinelands.

Host plants are restricted to a small number of shrubby, fernlike and poisonous Zambia species (Cycadacae). Eggs are laid on the host plant in clutches with usually a dozen, but up to 50 eggs per clutch.

The atala is a great example of aposematic (warning) coloration throughout its life cycle. The brightly colored larva or caterpillar feeds on cycads which contain a toxic secondary plant chemical (“cycasin”) which it retains in its body for life. Birds, lizards, and other animals may attempt to prey on the larva, pupa, and adults, but find them distasteful and learn to avoid these brightly patterned insects.
