Ceraunus Blue
Hemiargus ceraunus

Observation date: September 11, 2021
Submitted by: Chrustay
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Im unsure whether the BAMONA map for this species has all the counties where this species has been found in NM, but if it and Tolliver et.al. can be believed, this may be a first county record?

Coordinator notes: thanks for the detailed report on conditions at Sumner Lake. as for ceraunus, I have it as "known" from DeBaca County, but yours may be only the 2nd or 3rd such sighting. BAMONA is definitely NOT up to date (95% of my own sightings are not uploaded (my fault). Toliver et al is good, but 20+ years old. best up-to-date source is PEEC's Butterflies of NM by yours truly :^)
