Tropical Leafwing
Anaea aidea

Observation date: October 23, 2016
Submitted by: rchensley
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This specimen was hit by my truck on Park Road 31 approximately 1.5 miles south of the entrance to Guadalupe River State Park. I observed it hitting the grill and upon stopping, I harvested it. I assumed it was the more common goatweed leafwing until I prepared it for a display. Sorry for the dead specimen but I felt it important to document it.
