Butterfly

Pearl crescent or silver checkerspot butterfly

Pearl crescent or silver checkerspot butterfly 

Pearl crescent (Phyciodes tharos) or silver checkerspot (Chlosyne nycteis). I can't tell which species it is. Richard Brown of the Entomology Dept. at Mississippi State University says he can't separate the two species without checking their collection. Thanks to Betty J W for noticing.

I've asked my friend Richard Brown who is a specialist in Lepidoptera at Mississippi State to have a look at this.

Richard Brown says he can't separate the two species without checking the university's butterfly collection, and he is out of town.
