The USGS maps
show no records for South Carolina for either agarithe or philea.  When have they bred in the state?

I have never encountered an agarithe here in coastal South Carolina in over
30 years.  BUT, I have never seen an Orange Barred (P. philea) here either
and they are known to actually breed here at times.    My vote is for a P.
philea which can look pretty orange - esp. if it was a female. I think this
is much more likely. [snip]
