The official insect of the state of Maryland, the black and orange Baltimore checkerspot butterfly graces the second butterfly stamp.
Like the Baltimore oriole, this colorful butterfly is named after George Calvert, Lord Baltimore, who helped found the colony of Maryland. The butterfly’s colors resemble those on Calvert’s coat of arms, with orange and white spots forming a checkered pattern on black wings. The butterfly has an unusual life cycle. It spends the winter hibernating as a caterpillar, rolled up in a fallen leaf which it uses a sleeping bag.
Mint and never hinged.
