Observation date: July 27, 2021

Status: Resident

Verified date: September 01, 2021
Coordinator notes: Confirmatory second record for Boulder County. Good to know fulvia is surviving along the Front Range though limited. If you can, check in spring (late May) and see if you find it then also. This individual was certainly a successor from an earlier flight or diapause from any the year prior. Boy or girl yet Christian? Mike
