White-M Hairstreak
Parrhasius m album

Observation date: May 03, 2015
Submitted by: Roy Cohutta
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Only had a iPhone 5 camera-phone with me, so getting shots of the ventral proved difficult. I was able to lie on the ground and observe the ventral side of this individual. I did see the isolated white dot along the leading edge (costa) of the (ventral) hindwing (compare 'Southern' Oak Hairstreak). The extremely blurry photos I have also show this isolated dot.
