Queen Alexandra's Sulphur
Colias alexandra

Observation date: July 12, 2015
Submitted by: ncrosbyrd
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: mikefisher
Verified date: September 20, 2015
Coordinator notes: The center disc-spot on the underside of the hindwings is a giveaway that the sulphur butterfly is a Colias species. You can compare to K. lyside with photos on the BAMONA site. It is an infrequent stray into Colorado, less so in western Colorado than on the eastern side of the Continental Divide. Mike
