Anicia Checkerspot
Euphydryas anicia

Observation date: July 01, 2022
Submitted by: Eric Hartshaw
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: mikefisher
Verified date: July 09, 2022
Coordinator notes: The Anicia Checkerspot...formerly included with/as the "Variable Checkerspot" which I think were all considered as Euphydryas chalcedona at one time. The two species are evidently distinct (chalcedona mostly in the far western U.S., incl. Arizona). Note: If your following posted sighting of this butterfly is from the same place and date, I will/have reject/ed it as a duplicate submission for that reason only. Mike
