Coordinator notes: Cisthene picta is the most likely species; it is not C. kentuckiensis as it does not have a grey thorax. Of the two Cisthene with an orange thorax, picta and angelus, picta is more likely as it has been reported in Vermont previously. However, the sighting is unusual as Vermont is pretty far from its reported range.
