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: Basking on a cool morning at about 6,900' just above a subalpine lake. I suppose it is common to see clodius and smintheus at the same location. In this spot there seemed to be more smintheus and they tended to be a bit higher. 2nd photo s habitat.
