Apodemia mormo

Observation date: August 13, 2017
Submitted by: reginacohn
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Warm day. Butterfly on the ground.
Status: Resident
Verified by: Ken Davenport
Verified date: August 16, 2017
Coordinator notes: Based on locality and date, this should be Apodemia mormo cythera, but if you find one similar to this in the spring, it is likely to be another species that looks similar, Apodemia virgulti davenporti which I have found there in the Little Rock area. Subspecies dialeucoides is limited to the San Bernardino Mts.-Ken Davenport (yes, davenporti is named after me).
