Coordinator notes: I can go with Rocky Mountain because of gray forewing and brown hindwing, plus the spring season, plus the arrangement of FW white spots. Persius and AFranius also are possible, but they are smaller. persius hilltops. keep eyes open for afranius patrolling drainages. Bursting with Butterflies!!
