Coordinator notes: This is a very good record because of the late date and the fact this species is poorly known from Fresno County. What I do need to make this a scientific record of value is the actual locality and elevation where you found it and verify the date. I also need your name if you would allow me to publish this record in the annual Season Summary. Contact me at kdavenport93306@yahoo-com. I also plan to put the actual locality in your submission. It does not cost you anything to have your record published, and I also hold that responsibility for the Southwestern USA.
