Probably Not
I sent the photo to Gary Anweiler who described P. judyae, naming it in honor of his wife. His response:

"One of the reason there were so many un-named NA species is that superficially they all look so much alike. Often impossible to put a name on without having it in hand, or looking at the [genitalia]. The forewing length is too long for P. judyae ...so I would say either P. greyi (but almost too dark) or more likely a small male P. gigantea."

(no rsvp, thanks)
