Coordinator notes: Very difficult to tell this is arogos but after going back and forth to look at female specimens of arogos and Anatrytone logan I decided to confirm your suggested ID. As much as I can see of the upper wing color on the one side it appear as though the fulvous scales don't extend as far toward the edge of the forewings as it does on all of my female A. logan. Close to not being able to identify this photo positively. Mike
