Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: I observed two satyrs along the Pine Tree Trail above the Aguirre Springs Campground. Each was perched on a rock, likely to warm following a rainy night and during a humid morning. Conditions were cool, humid, and with partial cloud cover.

Coordinator notes: I love this butterfly - subspecies smithorum is the most beautiful of all the Red Satyr subspecies. I borrowed your top photo to better illuminate this species in Butterflies of NM. thank you!
