Observation notes: Not an uncommon species, as I have seen it at this location from June through August. However, on this date it was the second most abundant species seen (1st was Dainty Sulphur). I logged perhaps 45-50 this day. Basically, just a gorgeous butterfly.

Coordinator notes: it has been abundant up north here, too, where I attribute that to abundant regrowth of its host, Ceanothus fendleri, following many huge forest fires. Is that possibly true in your area, too? thanks for getting it into the books.
