Euptychia westwoodi

Observation date: August 05, 2021
Submitted by: Kzfisherman
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Unknown
Verified by: Charlie Doggett

Coordinator notes: Euptychia mollis was suggested for this ID which it could be except for the second largest white bar which is grayer in this photo which is typical of the westwoodi, while mollis is very white or as white as the first white bar. Otherwise these two plus Euptychia jesia are all three almost identical. See the Glassberg book for a comparison. Also remember that this photo is very dark making it difficult to ID.
