Thanks you, Keith. I was flipping back and for between these two and really was having trouble. I'll put it up at BugGuide too. I'll let you know what they say.

It's not an easy call, but if I had to guess, I'd say Orange Sulphur. The marginal black band looks a bit wide for C. philodice. But again, it's not an easy call, and it's just my best guess. You could try throwing it up at BG to see what people think.
