Submitted by: johnrwhitney
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Central Erie County, New York. Found on the floor in the house near two cut flower bouquets. I don't know if it came from the flowers or if it came in on clothing. I had been in the garden, too. It could have come in on its own for that matter. I put it on the pepper plant leaf for photographic purposes only.
