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: My first 2021 observation of this species about 3 weeks following drought-breaking monsoon rainfall. It was perching on various spots in a small area along Bar Canyon Trail, reacting to my presence. The morning was hot, breezy, sunny, and the soil was moist.
