Purple Arches
Polia purpurissata

Observation date: August 17, 2018
Submitted by: Jacksenzig
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Color is a little off. Could be Distinct Quaker or Fluid Arches but Purple Arches matches the markings much better. I'll be submitting one from a few days earlier that is paler like the other purples. This sure is a beautiful one.
