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: The day was warm and sunny with little wind. Poor picture. Just barely noticed this green butterfly as it landed. The habitat was on a coastal bluff over 100 ft. above the ocean. The last time I found this butterfly it was indicated that it had been determined to be Callophrys viridis but that BAMONA hadn't updated their data base.

Coordinator notes: You are right. I see no likelihood the name is going to change at the BAMONA website. It is Callophrys viridis, the Coastal Green Hairstreak
