Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: mikefisher
Verified date: September 02, 2017
Coordinator notes: Looks like the other color morph of the Gorgone Checkerspot, James Scott notes as "form bicolor." When they change into butterflies they look pretty much all the same. "Otero County" is a better location - more specific (La Junta ??) would be much better. Thanks. Mike
