Coordinator notes: I believe this is the Hop Azure (another one looks like it....Celastrina neglecta....but you can't tell without the specimen(s)) and since you found it around hop. Neglecta feeds on several different hosts (but especially Dogwood, Cornus sp.). As far as I can tell, this is an EL PASO COUNTY RECORD. If you can, email me the exact locality so I can accurately report your record. Nice going Mary Ann (again !), Mike
