Lynette, can you check Tony's comment
on and see if you think this would qualify as pellucida? It seems pretty far south and only a couple hundred feet in altitude so we would guess it would be the southern subspecies, but you might have a better idea. We'll ask Patrick to think about his images from Durham too.

Thanks John, Jane and Tony,
I don't think I could have figured this one out on my own.
