Verified date: December 23, 2019
Coordinator notes: More Western Branded Skippers....I confirmed this one rather than reject because it was on a different day I think....you were at the BCGNP during the height of the flight for this species in that area.....Mike PS Hesperia colorado may yet be found to be part of Hesperia comma. Right now the two are separated, H. comma only at higher latitude in North America (northern sections of the eastern U.S., arctic Canada to Alaska). Mike
