Leucochimona lagora

Observation date: August 18, 2022
Submitted by: Paul Prappas
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Photographed hiding under a leaf. Both "lepida" and "lagora" are fairly common and usually found together. Size and color when flying can help, but they are difficult to distinguish. This underside photo shows the ventral banding. The band that extends down from the inner eyespot is thinner than the eye.
