Submitted by: DeepSkyKelly
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I can't see enough of the hind wing to really feel 100% about this ID, but I'll go with Small Checkered.
Status: Resident

Verified date: May 08, 2022
Coordinator notes: though not perfect, it seems a better fit for xanthus than scriptura, also considering the setting. is either species on the park list?
