Nokomis Fritillary
Speyeria nokomis

Observation date: August 25, 2017
Submitted by: Joan Walsh
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Several yards up the bank from a fast running creek, near a lightly used trail.
Status: Resident
Verified by: Ken Davenport
Verified date: August 30, 2017
Coordinator notes: I took a nokomis female myself along the Little Walker River Rd. 2 weeks ago. This one was tough because the underside views were bad angles but I don't see the blackish disc on the hindwings that leto haves. Both species are in that area with nokomis far more common-Ken Davenport
