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

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 . ❤️
