Coordinator notes: Though I think this sighting is "too clean" to match the Statira Sulphur I have seen or most of the photos in books and online, I am not sure and realize that my first ID was "a long shot." But since it was marked misidentified and I am not sure, I'm going with the suggestion of someone else, changing it to Statira Sulphur or Aphrissa statira..
