Gold-stained Satyr
Cissia pseudoconfusa

Observation date: January 20, 2020
Submitted by: Paul Prappas
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Gold patch on FW is larger than similar "confusa" and small eyespots on HW have a different pattern. The rearmost three bands at the bottom of the HW are ochre. On the HW, there's also an additional eyespot at the bottom of the trailing brown band, distinguishing it from similar satyrs.
Status: Unknown

Coordinator notes: Butler's Satyr (Cissia palladia) species has been requested of BAMONA but there is very little online about it and this Confusa ID meets the requirements I believe. I will ask Kelly about it and maybe she will decide to change it to palladia.
