Speyeria hesperis

Observation date: August 16, 2021
Submitted by: JudyLY
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: stevecary
Verified date: August 19, 2021
Coordinator notes: Judy, this indeed is Argynnis (Speyeria) nausicaa subspecies capitanensis, which I unofficially call Southwestern Fritillary. BAMONA has not yet adopted that taxonomy/nomenclature, however, so the closest I can get in their system is Northwestern Frit. sorry for any confusion.
