Moved from ID Request.

from S.M. Clark:
"This appears to be a discolored specimen of Gastrophysa dissimilis. The natural color is metallic blue."

It does
have a slight metallic blue color under the scope, just a really old specimen, and I have no other specimens that match it.. Thanks again for another new species for the guide..

I was pondering Gastrophysa too but didnt look congeneric with the (few) species I was familiar with.
