Coronis Fritillary
Speyeria coronis

Observation date: July 17, 2020
Submitted by: taogirl
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: there were a lot of fritillaries and I was not sure they were all the same species
Status: Resident
Verified by: mikefisher
Verified date: November 12, 2020
Coordinator notes: Worn but the paler ground color, open ground color spaces in the black margin at the edge of the wings and narrower black marking all lend to this being the Coronis Fritillary...one of the lesser encountered frits in western Colorado. This also appears to be a NEW Colorado COUNTY RECORD for Ouray County. I'll record this record and check further. Mike
Checklist region(s): United States, Colorado, Ouray County
