Submitted by: RichHubie
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Coastal Dunes at Virgin Creek Beach, Fort Bragg CA unknown host plant
Status: Resident
Verified by: Ken Davenport
Verified date: April 28, 2015
Coordinator notes: This is actually Callophrys viridis since a decision by the ICZN. Callophrys dumetorum now applies to what was called C. perplexa. BAMONA has not adjusted this yet-Ken Davenport. Yours thus becomes an important record.
