Is this a Creole Pearly-eye? - Lethe creola
Modoc/Sumter National Forest, McCormick County, South Carolina, USA
May 16, 2015
This pearly-eye was photographed along a southeastern woodland creek in the midlands of South Carolina. I believe it is a Creole Pearly-Eye, but would like some confirmation.

Moved from ID Request.

Yes, Creole Pearly-eye
The bulge in the forewing postmedian line is very distinctive and eyespots are isolated.
I would like to lighten / clarify the pic before archiving it in species page but would like your OK ?

 
Creole Pearly-eye Edit is OK.
Cliff, please edit the photo to enhance it. Could you email a copy of the edited pic for my files.
