Doxocopa linda one from earlier this year, definitely a different pattern from my other adelpha.<br />
Apologies to wildflower, I was convinced it was an adelpha because of the upperside pattern.

  1. What a beauty! Posted 4 years ago

    1. You are right, so I had another search ...
      I knew that it wasn't Doxocopa laura because all photos of it looked wrong ( orange and white areas)
      But since you put me on the right track, it is Doxocopa linda.

      If my dead slow internet lets me, I'll upload another view. BTW I have a blue patched one somewhere which looks like laura. I have to find it.

      1. They look very right to me and the other photo confirms it - the tip of the forewing is yellow/orange while in Doxocopa linda it is dark. The clubs at the tip of the antennae are yellow while in Doxocopa linda they are dark.
