Dryas iulia

Observation date: February 09, 2020
Submitted by: Paul N
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Unknown
Verified by: Charlie Doggett
Verified date: June 26, 2022
Coordinator notes: A view without the bright orange top makes this one hard to identify but after a lot of research I'm quite confident that this is Julia Heliconian, Dryas julia. Then after all the searching I found one of my own photos of a Julia that is almost identical to this. So I'm pretty certain of this ID. :-)
