Coordinator notes: Dennis, can you contact me at kdavenport93306@yahoo.com? I need an actual locality where you photographed to publish this record to make this a scientifically important record. Maybe these will migrate into the state from Mexico this year. In 1992, they made it north to Kern County! Great photo!-Ken Davenport
