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 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

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