Observation date: September 15, 2022
Submitted by: cdfrick
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Stationary and unmoving during initial observation, flew off when I attempted to get closer (<1") with a macro diopter.
Status: Resident

Coordinator notes: Very nice set of pictures. Definitely looks to be Tarache quadriplaga and not Tarache aprica, T. aprica being the closest as far as being similar in appearance. Tarache quadriplaga can occur into Oklahoma. This record is fairly far north of the OK border and specimen appears quite fresh. So I will list it as resident rather than a stray, I feel that should be very correct. This also could very well be a Kansas State Record for the species. Thank you! JAMES STEEN
