Observation date: October 03, 2021
Submitted by: Paul Prappas
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found in dimly lit jungle along mountain trail. The very yellow lower part of the HW is hidden behind the leaf. I've just read about the HW being fully yellow for this species, and I'm wondering if the HW in this photo appears washed out due to my ISO in the darkened jungle. I can't remember if the flash activated, but it's likely it did. The other markings seem right for leptophobia caesia. Anyway, I really appreciate all the work being put into vetting these sightings. Thanks!
