Specimen type: Photograph

Coordinator notes: This is a great record, possibly subspecies tuolumnensis, known from the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne, Pate Valley Trail also inside the Park. It may also be subspecies cythera. We would need to see what these look like in numbers to determine that. Did you see others. I'd like to publish this record in the Season Summary. To do that I would need your actual name. Or is there a SF Bay Wildlife Organization. Contact me at kdavenport93306@yahoo.com. I wrote the 2004 and 2007 books on Yosemite, so I am familiar with that region and whats in it, though most of my work is outside the Park-Ken Davenport
