Gold-spotted Aguna
Aguna asander

Observation date: July 02, 2014
Submitted by: ASHLEY SMITH
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: Paul Prappas
Verified date: October 16, 2022
Coordinator notes: This is an Aguna. The Gold-spotted usually has a rather diffuse trailing edge to the HW band. However, that protrusion is right for Gold-spotted. The Emerald Aguna has a crisp straight band, with no protrusion. This appears to be a Gold-spotted Aguna with an unusually crisp HW band.
Checklist region(s): Mexico, Quintana Roo
