Northern Metalmark
Calephelis borealis

Observation date: July 04, 2017
Date notes: Partly cloudy day, temperature in low 80s
Submitted by: upperwabash
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Sighted resting on crown vetch and cut-leaf coneflower in a woodland clearing by a pond. Habitat in location with high limestone soil and round-leaf ragwort is common in the area. If the "wide dark band in the median" is not clear enough in the image, I can provide other images that show it is there.
