Submitted by: plex1ppus
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: J_Martineau
Verified date: August 19, 2014
Coordinator notes: Based on the slightly pointed forewings and thicker black scaling on forewing viens I think it is S. egleis albrighti. Tough to separate the two, so I could be wrong on this one.
