Coordinator notes: I can't say if this is dammersi or not without having a series in front of me. It looks like it and is similar looking to those I caught on Sherman Pass Rd. yesterday. I also can't rule out Euphilotes pallescens BUT that species is not known from San Diego County so for now, it is an enoptes complex member-Ken Davenport
