Tarache augustipennis

Observation date: May 22, 2023
Submitted by: Dwaine Wagoner
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Am not finding a great match.
Status: Resident

Coordinator notes: Though the color of the anal angle is suggestive of Tarache major, everything else is looks more diagnostic of Tarache augustipennis. A look at the underwing would really help with this one. Also, its a really dark variant with more dark scaling in the costal and terminal areas, which might make the anal angle look lighter than it should.
