Wood Nymph.... - Cercyonis pegala

Wood Nymph.... - Cercyonis pegala
Waneta Dam, Kootenay Boundary District, British Columbia, Canada

Found in dry Pend Oreille area. Many Common Wood-Nymphs, and yet this one seems a bit different. Wondering if it's possibly a Great Basin...? Jagged PM band and more defined inner median band...

Large Lower Eyespot
Yeah, it would be a slam dunk if it were smaller, but my understanding is that the Great Basin may also have an equally large lower eye spot.... so was basing the ID on the jagged PM band and the contrasting median band, but it's probably most likely a Common. I just wanted to get another perspective on this one. Thanks, I'll go with "pegala"
