I would agree, the variation is a little different on this specimen compared to the other ones in the genus.

Thank you Ornithoptera80 for the suggestion. I have doubts about A. amabilis as BugGuide has its easterly extent of range in west Texas. Also it has red and mine doesn't. I'll keep looking.
