Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: I saw a male fly by and land on some flowers. I knew what it was right away and quickly collected it. It seemed to be considerably slower than earlier in the year when I’d seen them before.

Coordinator notes: I can't tell what the status was where you found it...if in the wild it was probably resident, if in a residential area, probably a stray. Please state locality in the future along with placing the orange dot. Localities carry more weight scientifically-Ken Davenport
