Submitted by: Shearwater13
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: Ken Davenport
Verified date: August 18, 2020
Coordinator notes: Same with the locality issue. But this male appears to be egleis to me, it lacks the heavier black markings along the wing edges mormonia would have and both species occur in that area.-Ken Davenport
