Polites draco

Observation date: June 27, 2019
Submitted by: ncrosbyrd
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: mikefisher
Verified date: October 13, 2019
Coordinator notes: This one is a bit tougher but the pointed lighter spots grouped together on the exposed upper hindwing give this away. Hesperia viridis does not occur in the higher mountains and on Hesperia nevada, the upper hindwing is more fully fulvous colored and the light marks on it are individual and well separated. Mike
