Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. 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: Feeding at patch of Sulphur Buckwheat on East ridge of Tehachapi Mountain. Although there was a lot of Wright’s Buckwheat on the ridge too, it was not blooming which implies that this butterfly’s host is E. Umbellatum since Euphilotes only emerge when their host plant is in bloom. Elevation 7500ft +. Sunny day in the high 70’s F.
