Small Wood-Nymph
Cercyonis oetus

Observation date: July 08, 2021
Submitted by: Harry Forbes
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: In a high mountain meadow in the Dixie National Forest. In the first shot, you can see the much smaller second wing spot which is outboard of the top spot. Since I don't see an orange flush, I see Small Wood Nymph instead of Mead's. Feeding on flowers. Weather hot and sunny.
