Coordinator notes: You have two different frits pictured on this submission. I have identified the first photo and verify that one...the Northwestern Frit (you should find the Great-spangled Frit in your area soon...may you submitted and I verified one last year?...otherwise, it is very common down your development road above the junction with US 50 past the middle of July). The other photograph is the Mormon Frit (Speyeria mormonia eurynome). Mike
