Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
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?

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