Coordinator notes: I think this is A. eos; a bit hard to be certain from this photo. I can't find another sighting at the National Butterfly Center, although other Amblyscirtes sp. are recorded there. A. eos is known in Texas as far south as San Antonio, and there are historical sightings as far south as McAllen. Perhaps another coordinator can look at this and confirm my ID.
