Hydaspe Fritillary
Speyeria hydaspe

Observation date: August 26, 2017
Submitted by: gasigr
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Near summit of Mt. Ashland. Approximate 2.25 inch wingspan. I could see this identification going several ways but I'll put my money on S. zerene zerene.
Status: Resident
Verified by: Ken Davenport
Verified date: February 24, 2019
Coordinator notes: Definitely not egleis and thanks for including an upperside view. The hydaspe and zerene can be similar in that area (I've collected on Mt. Ashland) but my gut feeling is hydaspe based on appearance and wing shape.-Ken Davenport
