Coordinator notes: Robert, I am inclined to ID it as indicated because (a) it's either Clouded or Orange, (b) I can't really tell which because the dorsum is not visible, (c) females, especially those tending toward albinic, like this one, are indistinguishable, and (d) the two "species" are known to hybridize.
