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: Mid 70s and breezy. I believe it was Narrow-leaf Goldenbush that they were coming to for nectar. I am usure of the ID. It looks like some different patterning of a Sagebrush Checkerspot.

Coordinator notes: You found this in an area where 3 other subspecies of acastus occur: vallismortis, robusta and sabina. Lets not forget neumoegeni, a subspecies I took today near Lone Pine in Inyo County.-Ken Davenport
