Shining-blue Lasaia
Lasaia agesilas

Observation date: November 15, 2019
Submitted by: David F Smith
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: stevecary
Verified date: January 21, 2023
Coordinator notes: David this is a tough call for me. This seems to be a female (I have only seen a male in the wild), so I am relying on Glassberg 2017, pp. 74-75. To my eye, the patterns of dark spots on FW and HW seem to match agesilas better than maria or any of the others.
