Observation notes: Specimen fed on flowers for several minutes. Images are of a single specimen which exhibits an odd color topside. I have seen other specimens of blues like this in the area, where the topside color is not really orange but looks washed out. No Hosackia gracilis observed anywhere in this area, so Northern Blue ID seems unlikely.

Coordinator notes: After further review of the images, it appears this is an Anna Blue, but if so these should be larger in size than Melissa. Size does not come out well in photographs and this may be an important record. You can contact me directly at email@example.com, I may use the records in the annual Season Summary. Were these along a small stream in the meadow?-Ken Davenport
