Lorza's Sister
Adelpha cocala lorzae

Observation date: August 14, 2017
Submitted by: ncrosbyrd
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: Paul Prappas
Verified date: October 16, 2022
Coordinator notes: There seems to be some confusion around this species. When I was in Panama, this was identified as "delinta". But the band on "delinta" is rather thin and wavy. This is very thick and matches up much better for Lorza's Sister, Adelpha cocala lorzae. Some, not all of Lorza's have the two orange spots floating in the corner of the FW.
