Butterfliers,

This evening, Harry LeGrand and Lori Arent sent me a few pearly-eye photos =
to peruse, and I noticed a possible field mark that I hadn=E2=80=99t heard =
of before. It appears that the white dots in the center of the large black=
eyespots on the ventral wings appear as round dots in Northerns and as hor=
izontal bars in at least some of the eyespots in Southern Pearly-eyes. I=
=E2=80=99d be interested in knowing how reliable this field mark is.

For example, it seems to hold up pretty well on my photos:

This may be a useful character when other field marks are obscured or ambig=
uous, like antennal club patterns. Let me know what you think from your ex=
perience or photos!

Cheers,
