Submitted by: Patricia12
Specimen type: Photograph

Status: Resident
Verified by: Ken Davenport

Coordinator notes: Please put a city or geographic name for your localities. A dot on a map is not publishable and undermines the value of the record other than for a range map. As you noted, this is rumiko. I don't know why the names have not been updated by BAMONA. Many scientific names are going through changes-Ken Davenport
