Observation date: June 23, 2016
Submitted by: Bdog
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Only other individual observed at this site. Smaller with more dainty figure than the more numerous White Checkered, also darker and weaker flight. White Checkered scare them away and thousands of grasshoppers flying about made tracking them very difficult.
