Coordinator notes: If you are using the two butterfly websites, this is clearly a Crimson not a Bordered Patch and if using the book Butterflies of Mexico & Central America you will notice the difference there is in the number of cel spots or white dots on the upper wing, making yours a Crimson Patch. In the book they are very much alike.
