Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: In Madera Canyon With Brett, and he pointed out this little checkerspot that was hiding in the shady area getting nectar. Rain all morning gave way to mostly cloudy sky's. We saw lots of new species for me, and a lot more for my two partners as I had been there before.
