California Dogface
Zerene eurydice

Observation date: March 03, 2017
Submitted by: MAKI
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Flying along a small creek. Landed on ground. No other butterflies observed in area.
Status: Resident
Verified by: Ken Davenport
Verified date: March 05, 2017
Coordinator notes: This individual appears to have an unusual amount of white on the forewing but I see nothing here typical of a Southern Dogface. There is only one actual record for Zerene cesonia? I know of only 1 record for Ventura County and I would need an unquestionable specimen or photograph to accept a record of a Southern Dogface for that county-Ken Davenport
