Polygonia oreas

Observation date: May 27, 2020
Submitted by: Chris Carvalho
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Basking on oceanspray leaf in a mixed conifer/deciduous forest clearing. The comma mark is a bit less pointed on one end than the classic oreas shape, but the dorsal spots appear to be indicative of oreas. VHWs lack the submarginal spots of P. gracilis.
