Clodius Parnassian
Parnassius clodius

Observation date: July 29, 2021
Submitted by: glennfine
Specimen type: Photograph
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.
