Identification

Polymorphic, with two distinct morphs occurring on Block Island; the morph shown in the last image has been recorded on Block Island only about half a dozen times. Each morph is more similar to a locally occurring morph of A. flavivittana than to the other morph of the species. A. inana is similar as well. Other similar polymorphic species not found on Block Island include A. hastiana and A. youngana.
