The Aphrodite Fritillary has a distinct row if dark dots at wing edges and dark lines bear center of body. The ventral side has several rows of white dots. They are found in wooded areas and moist prairie meadows. The caterpillar is black-brown with black bands and spines with orange in between. They overwinter before hatching. The host plants are violets. I saw these two while visiting northern Minnesota.
