Observation date: June 24, 2020
Submitted by: RichHubie
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Sunny and warm but windy. Strange location for this butterfly. This location is Mendocino Pygmy Forest and also boarders on the east end of a cleared airport runway landing area. No big pines that I’ve found them in previously. Is the Coastal (Melanic) Pine White still considered a subspecies?
Status: Resident
