Thank you much for the info Karen. Might a seasoned noah ranger have any other top secret resources I may use in the future? :)

It isn't that unusual for butterflies to be reclassified from time to time. I usually refer to www.butterfliesandmoths.org as they tend to keep more abreast of any changes than wikipedia for instance. The site also has a regional search function which is handy for identification. They use the alternate scientific name for this species http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/speci...

Thank you, not sure about the scientific name though... two field guides and two different names. Is this common?
