Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America freely available. 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!
Observation notes: Repeat sighting in the same area as the last several sightings among grasses, mustard, and thistle, as part of a transitional zone between riparian terrain and drier chaparral. Individual was willing to sit for longer periods, intermittently flying about energetically in random patterns, much like Blues. It seems to like this yellow flower, but I am unsure of the plant identity. Weather has been unseasonably cool for July, with late breaking fog. Community hosts Whites, Sulfurs, Buckeyes, Blues, Hairstreaks, and several occasional larger species.
