Coordinator notes: There are not a lot of records of this species. You might consider submitting this sighting to MPG as they show no records in AR-OK area on their map. Also, BAMONA needs a good photo of this species in their database for the species page--there is none right now--so you might consider sharing your photo with them also. Nice find.
