Remarks

On Block Island, this species is highly variable, with many individuals having prominently streaked forewings. Based on online images and the specimens at the CUIC, most populations of this species do not include the streaked color morph. DNA barcoding results indicate the existence of at least one undescribed species near mutabilis.
