Thank you so much for your wonderful site. I found this little (slightly raggedy) creature resting on a curb in the parking lot at Sequoia National Park. Actually there was a German tourist taking pictures of him before me, but as far as I can tell he hasn’t already sent them to you–I did not see this little guy on your site. I thought at first it might be a Lorquin’s Admiral, but the markings did not quite look right, so I googled Lorquin’s Admiral Mimic and came up with the California Sister species, then did a search on bug guide. I have to say it is only from reading up about these creatures on your website that I would have even thought to do all that. So thank you again,
Your subject line caught our attention because we don’t have many images of the California Sister, Adelpha bredowii californica, on our site. Thanks for sending it.
