Moved from Cixius.

Moved from Cixius stigmatus.

Distictive sp. not previously shot...
Probably not previously photographed due to the fact that *so many* in the family are not determinable via photos, but I thought it might be distinctive enough with the dark shoulders to be id-able...

Cixius stigmatus
The bold color pattern is distinctive for this common, wide-ranging species.

You are the first to photograph this species! Also watch for Oliarus, which is also common (on milkweed), widespread and similarly patterned except that the wing tips are entirely dark.
