Crimson Patch
Chlosyne janais

Observation date: July 15, 2018
Submitted by: Charlie Doggett
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: On one of the trails at Xandari Nature Resort, Tacacori, Alajuela, Alajuela, Costa Rica
Status: Unknown

Verified date: September 12, 2022
Coordinator notes: At first I identified this as a Bordered Patch but now believe it is the Crimson Patch because there is no border of tiny white dots below the two orange patches which is a characteristic of the Bordered Patch. The stray white dots on the shoulder of the FWs are not really the pair of cell spots found on the Crimson Patch.
