Coordinator notes: So many of the "Sisters" look alike until you examine the details. In this one there are 2 identifiers for me that are not found together in the others: 1) At the top of the long white band there are two distinct white spots slightly separated from the band and 2) The orange dots on the tail each have a small black dot in it, which is true of a couple of other sisters that are otherwise different.
