Submitted by: DeepSkyKelly
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I'm uncertain on this one. The orange on its upper wings was not as pronounced as others I've seen. This could also be a Clouded Sulphur.
Status: Resident

Coordinator notes: I appreciate your comments on the amount of orange because one never gets an upperside shot. Clouded and orange are thought to hybridize with some regularity, so the distinction we make based on the amount of orange is of uncertain value, to be honest.
