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!

Coordinator notes: Difficult ID amidst the confusing "Azure Complex." However...based on location, timing of sighting, and ventral pattern, C. serotina is favored.
