  Sighting 1221205

Observation date: July 03, 2011
Submitted by: Dwaine Wagoner
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Came to UV light. Same as sighting 543132. I question that all the accepted sightings have undergone genitalic dissection.
Status: Resident
Verified by: J_Martineau
Verified date: August 01, 2019
Coordinator notes: I'm reasonably sure your right that this is P. occidentalis. The variability within species and overlap among species makes it tough to be 100% sure without dissection.
