Dracula astuta

Dracula astuta

Dracula astuta, award 20092646, has been determined to be Dracula astuta by the SITF, July 2009, with assistance of Dr. Carlyle Luer.
Please include the following note in the description when you submit the award:

Dracula astuta is considered by some to be part of the larger more broadly defined and variable species Dracula erythrochaete. Dr. Luer, following the original description by Reichenbach, considers the species Dracula astuta to be larger, flatter, and more colorful than Dracula erythrochaete. To date, separating the two species with DNA evidence, has resulted in no loci that are different, per Gary Meyers.
In judging future specimens of these two species please keep in mind that one should consider both species in the evaluation.
