Coordinator notes: Andrew Warren's Oregon book listed this species as expected for Wasco County if I read the abbreviations right I don't know if this is a new County record or not. I would contact Jon Shepard, the Season Summary Coordinator from that state. His email address: shep.lep@netidea.com. The BAMONA changes recently make it harder for me to research what they have.
Checklist region(s): Wasco County, United States, Oregon
