Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
No sorry bayucca only a similarly positioned one.
I will try to get closer than the genus, but I am sceptic that we can get down to species level with only the upperside view. As I already pointed out there are 2 almost identical and highly variable species and our ID should be on the safe side. I still suggest Polythrix sp. as scientific ID until we have confirmation. Do you have other pictures of that one?
Thanks Ashish & bayucca
Good jobm Ashish. Asine and Mexicana are different species and in my eyes you can't separate them from a single picture. They look too similar within the genus and have also some variability within the species.
