Observation date: October 16, 2016
Submitted by: mford8992
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Weather was in the mid-80s. There was a breeze and it was moving quickly, so the picture isn't very clear. The upper wings looked almost like brown scales and the lowers were almost translucent. It had a knob or a hump on the upper part of its back. The plant is Lantana (Lemon Drop?).
