Chestnut Crescent
Anthanassa argentea

Observation date: December 24, 2017
Submitted by: Paul Prappas
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This female photographed outside entrance to Bentsen State Park. At first, thought was Tulcis Crescent, but HW PM band is shaped exactly like Chestnut. Reddish hue along outer edge of forwing is in keeping with a female Chestnut and double marginal bands are also very much in line with a Chestnut.
