Observation date: June 29, 2019
Submitted by: glennfine

Observation notes: Nectaring on Dogbane
Status: Resident
Verified by: Ken Davenport
Verified date: January 28, 2020
Coordinator notes: I can't totally rule out Speyeria hesperis cottlei, but facial orange hairs seem more typical of zerene. With fritillaries, actual specimens are hard to ID, photographs are even more difficult-Ken Davenport
