Coordinator notes: On bugguide.net , this is the description for D. ventralis: "Adults - Similar in external appearance to D. argyralis, but with the antemedial spots absent, the outer cell-spot often absent, and the postmedial, submarginal, and subapical spots small or minute. Ground color varying from orange-yellow to olivaceous fuscous, but rarely as dark as in dark forms of argyralis and psudargyralis; clear orange-yellow specimens appear mainly in the southernmost parts of the range (Munroe, 1956). "
In this sighting, all these spots are prominent, not absent or reduced. In reviewing confirmed sightings on BG of both argyralis and ventralis, I believe the characteristics on the subject sighting support an id. of D. argyralis. SAT
