  1. Another Arta sp. impersonator! Maybe Parachma lequettealis again? Posted 2 months ago
    1. It looks similar, but what about the difference in the yellow edge? Posted 2 months ago
      1. I was unsure about that as well, but if you do a good image search, several come up with a yellow edge and are labeled as Parachma lequettealis. But, those IDs could also be wrong.

        For example:
