Guatemalan Cracker Hamadryas guatemalena

Observer

narca

Date

October 20, 2019 12:21 PM MST

Description

First identified by Jim Brock, seconded by Rich Bailowitz. I needed an expert's input, as this is a first state record for Arizona, and I agree with their assessment. In the top views, the red cell-end bar shows well. Also, the inner large marginal spot on the hind wing is frosted, unlike in Variable Cracker.

I've seen this big beetle in other years, and always thought of it as a "June bug".

I had settled on Silver-banded as the closest ID I could find among the hairstreaks, but don't know whether there are other very similar species to consider.
