Anartia jatrophae

Observation date: October 22, 2018
Submitted by: aphCC
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I don't know what the species name is and I'm curious to find out what type of moth I found in my backyard. It was a pretty bright and hot day outside and it was just flying around slowly in my backyard and would occasionally sit down on a leaf or the grass. I think it's a moth cause of it's hairy body, sorry I don't know much.
