Nice! First BugGuide images of a female of this species. Males lack the black on the hindwings.

Many thanks, Paul. Very interesting. I did not know about the females having black spots on the hingwing. There aren't pictures of the female with wings spread on BOLD or MPG. Sorry the pictures are of such poor quality Hopefully I will see another one there and do a better job of photographing it. These are so hard to identify properly!
