Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident

Coordinator notes: Difficult call. B. albescens and B. communis can't be distinguished from each other using photographs, and B. philetas is also very similar to those sp. And all three can be found in Blanco County. But I think this is probably correct.
