Observation notes: None.

Coordinator notes: Although this individual resembles W. otho as suggested, P. yehl has more defined ventral hindwing spots. They are more "smudged" in appearance in W. otho, which almost always has another pale spot in the discal cell of the ventral hindwing, which P. yehl lacks. Also, the ventral forewing margin in males of P. yehl tends to be darker as in the image. JVC
