Coronis Fritillary
Speyeria coronis

Observation date: September 12, 2020
Submitted by: MAKI
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Sipping nectar, several fritillaries seen in the area.
Status: Unknown
Verified by: Ken Davenport
Verified date: September 20, 2020
Coordinator notes: You did good, this is one of the least known fritillaries in the Sierra Nevada, but we do know they show up late in the season on the east side of the northern Sierra Nevada. I'll use this record in the season summary. I am familiar with these in Utah, the size is too large and markings more pronounced than in Great Basin Fritillary-Ken Davenport.
