Arizona Sister
Adelpha eulalia

Observation date: July 19, 2015
Submitted by: Joseph Miller
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Accidental resubmission, I don't know how to delete a pending record, so please delete if this gets reviewed:) Pretty crazy find by Anthony Miller, who originally thought it might be a "White Admiral" and called me over pretty quickly to get a better look. Was pretty shocked to see that it was a Sister and was able to ID it as an Arizona Sister. Was feeding on a dying American Elm tree with dozens of Emporers and Red Admirals. One of only a handful of records for Kansas, but one of many southern butterflies seen in the state during 2015
