Figure 9. Inflorescences of Spermacoce verticillata, a wildflower. The nectar in the flowers attracts adults of the white M hairstreak, Parrhasius m-album (Boisduval & LeConte). One of the "common" names of this wildflower is shrubby false buttonweed. This plant is also called souhern Larraflower, as it is an important nectar source for Larra wasps, a significant biological control of pest mole crickets.
