Submitted by: stevecary
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: 2 or 3 seen, no Eriogonum association noted
Status: Resident

Coordinator notes: this individual is fairly dark as mejicanus goes, but DHW postmedian area is orange and eye is gray (I think), both of which rule out Apodemia mormo, which seems to share the Gorge with mejicanus.
