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: Cloudy and hazy from smoke from distant wildfires. Temp. around 70 degrees F. One seen nectaring on buckwheat then on the ground a few feet away. It did not offer a ventral shot , but I captured a blurry image as it flew from the buckwheat.

Coordinator notes: this is too orange for Mormon, also too far east. it is the Front Range race of Sonoran Metalmark. that buckwheat (Eriogonum jamesii v. jamesii) is its host there. a good get!
