Bacopa monnieri is an aquatic herb that has been used as an ornamental in ponds and aquaria and as a medicinal herb.. Anartia jatrophae. The tobacco cutworm, Spodoptera litura, has been observed to cause damage under greenhouse conditions (Tripathi et al., 1997).

An updated list of the butterflies and skippers of Florida is presented which treats 193 species (21 1 species and subspecies). English common names are provided.
Lemon bacopa is a host for larvae of the white peacock butterfly (Anartia jatrophae) (Florida Native Plant Society 2015). Lemon bacopa is widely available from a variety of sources, including stores that carry aquarium plants, water garden supply shops, and nurseries that sell aquatic or native plants.
Given that the age of the three Anartia species sampled in my study is much older than thought, with the split between A. jatrophae and the other two species going back to the early Miocene, it is.
With around 6,000 species, this is the largest family of butterfly. Many species, like the monarch butterfly, are very colorful. Butterflies in this family are called brush-foots because of their tiny forelegs. Their front two legs look more like brushes than feet and are not used for walking. Many species in this family have some brown or orange on their wings and veins on their forewings.

The species identification was performed with the aid of specialized bibliography (Brown Jr. 1992, Canals 2000, 2003, Casagrande 1995, D’Abrera 1981, 1987a, b, c, 1988, 1994, 1995, Glassberg 2007) and confirmed by specialists (see acknowledgments).The taxonomical classification follows the proposal of Warren et al. (2009) for Hesperiidae, and Lamas (2004) for other families.
Based on four years of butterfly monitoring in four contrasting natural habitats on St. Eustatius, we document large and consistent differences in the butterfly species assemblages in the different habitats and compare the butterfly assemblages of the three windward Dutch islands to those of other islands of the Lesser Antilles. Seven new species records were established for St. Eustatius.
