Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found in a forest on a somewhat warm, partly cloudy, and windy day.
Status: Resident
Verified by: mikefisher
Verified date: July 23, 2017
Coordinator notes: Correctly identified by the observer. The orange tips are one of our more desirable Colorado butterflies and they are not observed very often. The area of Poudre Canyon is one of the better, more reliable locations where it can be found in spring. Nice one! Mike
