  Sighting 936342

Observation date: October 02, 2013
Submitted by: toddewen
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Similar to the orange sulphur photographed at the same time but lighter yellow color and different wing markings, rarely settling and then with folded wings, caught in a net.
Status: Resident
Verified by: James Steen
Verified date: May 30, 2022
Coordinator notes: Female white form of the hybrid between C. eurytheme & C. philodice. The shape of black border on upper wing and lack of spots compared to female C. eurytheme is pure C. philodice. The warmth in the white on upperside wing, plus underside color indicates the C. eurytheme influence. Thanks!
