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: Seen hilltopping on the "Volcano" in Calavera Open Space, among clumps of Buckwheat, Sage, Rhus, and Asters. This is the only place I have seen these, and they only show up around February or March. They compete for territory with the Gray Hairstreak and Duskywings, and get into many aerial duels which are interesting to watch by almost impossible to record.
