Limenitis weidemeyerii

Observation date: June 23, 2018
Submitted by: cmpuppie
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Landed right on my fingertip looking for electrolytes!
Status: Resident
Verified by: A_baldini
Verified date: July 25, 2018
Coordinator notes: Correct identification. This one looks extremely worn on the right hindwing, so it probably emerged in early June, and is now near the end of its life. Or, a vertebrate predator may have bitten a big chunk out of its wing.
