Rocky Mountain Duskywing
Erynnis telemachus

Observation date: April 30, 2022
Submitted by: Joshua C
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I have dorsal and ventral shots of this one so hopefully it can be IDed. It might be the same individual as the other duskywing I submitted but that seems unlikely due to the hindwing differences.
Status: Resident
Verified by: stevecary
Verified date: May 07, 2022
Coordinator notes: excellent shots that show dorsal and ventral, including the two pale VHW apical spots consistent with Rocky Mountain.
Checklist region(s): United States, New Mexico, Bernalillo County
