Polites draco

Observation date: July 09, 2021
Submitted by: twofried

Observation notes: Calling this a Nevada but wondering if could be Western Branded at this elevation. White spots underneath seem to form a 'C'. But it is early for W Branded to fly.

Verified by: stevecary
Verified date: July 11, 2021
Coordinator notes: too early for Western Branded . . . males should be out in another week or two. Draco is a good high meadow resident.
