Bordered Patch
Chlosyne lacinia

Observation date: August 23, 2022
Submitted by: Rosa Ruperto
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Unknown
Verified by: Charlie Doggett
Verified date: November 28, 2022
Coordinator notes: Rosa, rather than the Chlosyne janais you suggested, I have identified this as "Chlosyne lacinia, Bordered Patch," for two reasons: (1) This sighting image does not show the two white cell spots on the FW shoulders that the janais always has, and more obvious is that (2) This specimen has tiny white dots as a lower border of both orange patches which only the Bordered Patch has. And thanks for all the wonderful sightings you are sharing! You're a star! And appreciated!
