Behr's Hairstreak
Satyrium behrii

Observation date: July 11, 2016
Submitted by: donahilkey
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: A_baldini
Verified date: February 26, 2018
Coordinator notes: Indeed, a somewhat worn individual of the Behr's Hairstreak. This is actually a Rio Blanco County record on BAMONA, which I find strange considering that all the surrounding counties have records of this species. This hairstreak is probably not very uncommon in the county, though, especially if there are abundant evergreen forests. Thanks for the submission!
