Pavon Emperor
Doxocopa pavon

Observation date: December 03, 2017
Submitted by: Paul Prappas
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This butterfly was seen high in trees. It wasn't until studying photo that we realized it was either a Silver Emperor or Pavon Emperor. It's a very worn female so the HW is worn away. However, based on the thickness of the white bands and the broad shape of the yellow spots, we believe this is a Pavon Emperor.
