Submitted by: A_baldini
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Weather: Mostly sunny and 56 degrees. Notes: I saw this first Olympia Marble in the valley between two hogbacks at Coyote Ridge Natural Area; it flew up from the side of the trail to land on a Rubber Rabbitbrush. On top of the small hogback to the east, I discovered a much larger population.

Coordinator notes: Considering the cold spring this year this is a relatively early date for this marble - one of my favorite early season foothill butterflies. Mike
