Chlosyne palla

Observation date: July 18, 2020
Submitted by: gp
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This is a checkerspot. But the variety is not one I've seen before. Front of the forewings has a large dark area. Within that area are three elongated spots. Unable to find anything in my books or your site that shows this characteristic. Weather was a sunny day next to Brice Creek east of Cottage Grove OR.
