Mylitta Crescent
Phyciodes mylitta

Observation date: June 29, 2019
Submitted by: gasigr
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Field off Soda Mountain Road.
Status: Resident
Verified by: Ken Davenport
Verified date: December 06, 2019
Coordinator notes: This female lacks orange on the antennae and basically has a Field Crescent phenotype, but the real orseis does occur in that county. I thought this and the male could be pallida, but Andrew Warren does not mention that being in Jackson County.-Ken Davenport. The females in Oregon look a bit different than what I am used to, but this female is more like mylitta than pulchella-Ken Davenport
