This report is from the same general area on the same day as 3387156. It is tempting to think it is a worn specimen of the same species, but it also resembles 3386802 and 3384732 which are currently identified as taxeotis stereospila.

Glenn - my recollection is that this was consistent in size with a Taxeotis stereospila (whereas 3387156 was significantly larger; more the size of an Epidesmia hypenaria).

Put in Taxeotis stereospila for the time being
