Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!

Coordinator notes: Chris: This is a great record, how close to the coast? This is subspecies sagiittigera, believed to be extinct until about 2006 when I rediscovered it in Santa Barbara County. It is also rediscovered in a few places in LA County. Frazier Park populations are blend zone populations with ssp. excubitus.-Ken Davenport
