Mella Skipper
Anatrytone mella

Observation date: July 15, 2023
Submitted by: Charlie Doggett
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: My garden, Residencial Roca Verde, Atenas, Alajuela, Costa Rica
Status: Unknown
Verified by: Charlie Doggett
Verified date: July 15, 2023
Coordinator notes: This is difficult to have a certain ID without a folded wings view which he never gave me. That could make it a Whirlabout which I've seen here before, but to me the top of the wings better match the Mella Skipper.
