Concerning your earlier comment, I imagine Garrett was drawing what he 'saw'. When an orange spot occurs over a purple blotch, the orange does appear to have a dark ring. I don't imagine that either Garrett or Pease had the optics nor the lighting that we can carry into the field today. Patty Jo and I have an old dissecting scope that practically always goes into the field with us. It makes a big difference when there are relatively complete color notes on many of the small forms -- especially when the slides don't turn out too well.
