  1. You're keeping us quite busy in manually creating species :) It's a good thing, no Wikipedia page usually means it is "obscure" or little known, which is what we love over here. Posted 4 years ago
  2. All Phanus species look similar, but I think this is more likely a Phanus marshalli. The V shaped spots on the forewings are more deeply cut than those of the other species from the vitreus group.
