Coordinator notes: The sighting location looks to be in the middle of the Davis Strait, nearly halfway to Greenland, so I'm pretty sure that's incorrect. The zip code isn't in Nunavut, either (30157 is in Georgia). So I don't quite know what to make of this sighting. It is certainly A. thisoaria but it's much more likely to have been photographed in Georgia than Nunavut; there are certainly no records of A. thisoaria that far north. I'll accept the sighting with the caveat that none of the geodata is reliable. JRains
