Coordinator notes: Edith's and Anicia are both found at high elevation, though Anicia is far more common. Edith's has a narrow flight window. March/April is the best time to find them. They are highly variable on the dorsal side. Best to get a photo of the ventral HW to confirm an Edith's.
Checklist region(s): Canada, British Columbia
