Species: Vanessa cardui Painted Lady
Specimen Type: Photograph
Observation Notes: I did not see a white dot on orange, so I am guessing Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui) vice American Lady. Are there any other identification keys for this butterfly?

Review Notes: Pinkish colour not so evident in this one, but look at the five small eyespots: the firat and last ones are not enlarged, don't have blue centres, therefore Painted Lady.
