Monarch - Limenitis archippus
Charleston, Kanawha County, West Virginia, USA

Moved to Limenitis archippus archippus
Moved from Monarch.

Black line across middle of hind wing indicates Viceroy rather than Monarch. Yours seems to be first BugGuide record from WV. Good find!

 
Cool!
I was a little hesitant to place it because I’m definitely not an expert so thank you for catching that!!!! I absolutely love finding first of records for my state . ❤️
