California Dogface
Zerene eurydice

Observation date: November 02, 2019
Submitted by: falco1
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: With the apex of the forewing worn off that is no longer helpful. Thin ring around forewing spot may be diagnostic? Placement of that spot is also more tricky for me with the worn wing. Are there other ways to differentiate between Southern and California?
Status: Resident

Coordinator notes: Yes, female Southern Dogfaces have a dogs head on the forewings too, which usually show through the wings.-Ken Davenport
