Observation notes: Feeding at Gray Monardella flowers on South slope of Mt Harwood at 9000+ ft elevation in the San Gabriel Mountains. It briefly stopped at flowers of Wright’s Buckwheat (Eriogonum wrightii var. subscaposum) before feeding at Monardella flowers. There were also Alpine Sulphur-flowered Buckwheat (Eriogonum umbellatum var. minus) and Hoary Wild Buckwheat (Eriogonum saxatile) blooming nearby. The last pic is of the Eriogonum wrightii var. subscaposum it stopped at. I didn't see any Eriogonum Nudum until at least 3000 ft. lower at the Mt Baldy parking lot. Partly cloudy morning in the 60's F.

Coordinator notes: Its not glaucon or comstocki in that range, so based on time of year, enoptes seems the best choice even if you did not see E. nudum-Ken Davenport...it looks like enoptes I caught yesterday at 10,100'!
