Montana State Insect

Montana State Insect

The beautiful mourning cloak was designated Montana’s official butterfly in 2001. It is often the first butterfly to emerge in spring, frequently before the winter snow has melted.

In 2005, there was an unsuccessful attempt to designate a dragonfly (the western meadowhawk) Montana’s official insect.
