Observation date: June 29, 2011
Submitted by: M. A. Bradley
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: The butterfly was in the last stages of life - fluttering wings a bit, but not able to fly. It was a sunny, very warm day. The following day, I saw ants beginning to dismantle the carcass. The photograph is not a good one, but may give enough detail for identification.
