    Default "White" Yellow Flash

    A Cheap shot of a "White Flash" that teased Mark and me at Panti Forest, allowing just a single shot before it disappeared into the treeline.

    I think it is a worn-out copy of the Rapala domitia domitia (Yellow Flash), unless there is really a White Flash.

    I think your ID is correct. The markings are all in order, just the background colour is paler. Females are generally, (from the very few I've seen in Museums etc) very slightly paler than the males anyway, but this appears a bit extreme! Incedentally, I know this as the Sulphur Flash.
