Lagora Metalmark
Leucochimona lagora

Observation date: August 25, 2022
Submitted by: Paul Prappas
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Saw several during my stay, but photographing them was a challenge. Had to try and photograph them perched underneath a leaf, as I did with this one.
Status: Resident
Verified by: Paul Prappas
Verified date: October 09, 2022
Coordinator notes: Barring along top of FWs should be clean and thin on "lagora". Similar "lepida" has less clean bars and a little thicker, with the outer bar lying closer to the marginal band. This individual seems most like a "lagora"
