Mexican Longtail
Polythrix mexicanus

Observation date: January 18, 2020
Submitted by: Paul Prappas
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This butterfly was found perched underneath a large leaf, which is described as Mexican Longtail behavior. We raised the leaf and photographed the bug. Still, I cannot be sure this isn't an Asine Longtail. They appear almost identical.
