Coordinator notes: Correct identification of the Yuma Skipper Christian and it looks like this was quite a cooperative subject too! I went down to the campground at the Gates of Lodore and saw the host growing there although I did not see any yuma at that time in early July. That year the season was not as advanced as it is this year. Mike
