  1. I have some confidence in suggesting Erythroneura rubra. Many details seem to match. Posted one month ago
    1. It is very close, Ferdy (definitely closely related), but notice that the orange markings here merge together at several points while they don't on E. rubra (much more clear separation). This entire tribe is pretty tricky at times! Posted one month ago, modified one month ago
      1. To say the least! Thanks for checking. Posted one month ago
        1. I'm working on posting these to BugGuide as several have stumped the experts on iNaturalist. As I've told Christine, we may have multiple undescribed species from my recent nights at the sheet. Posted one month ago
          1. That's exciting, best of luck! And don't worry about overthinking, it's so much appreciated the way you try to be accurate. Posted one month ago
            1. This one is gorgeous! I am leaning towards E. rubra as well. The pattern isn't exact, but I can't find anything closer. Posted one month ago
              1. Cool. I think I'm going to leave it at E. rubra as I can't find any others similar in color/pattern. Posted one month ago
                1. Great! Posted one month ago
        2. Some other close ones (but not quite)

          I'll let you know if I get a confirmation on A. rubra. I may just be overthinking the variations in pattern?
