Submitted by: Paul Prappas
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This could be the more common Barred Yellow. I do not have a dorsal photo, so cannot determine if FW bar is curved or straight. However, the HW shape on Banded is rounder and less pointed than on Barred. The patterning on the HW is a good match as well. But I am not 100% on this...
