Submitted by: greggra
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Several species were on a freshly deposited scat in the middle of an old access road. Sunny. This individual looked much lighter and golden in color than all the other Duskywing/Cloudywing individuals. I'm unsure as to whether it is a different species or just faded.
