Observation date: May 28, 2021
Submitted by: jhintermeister
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This is in an area with plentiful Eriogonum nudum along the edges of the Bald Mountain Trail. This is the first definitive sighting I've had in Santa Clara County but I suspect they are regular and locally common in this area near Mt. Umunhum.

Coordinator notes: This is a tough call but I don't think Bernardino Blues get quite that far north.-Ken Davenport
