Submitted by: Gordon Berman
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This BF was in the creek bed that runs parallel to the La Cueva parking lot - a rich area for a wide variety of BFs. I’m curious which species its dark coloration most resembles.
Status: Resident

Coordinator notes: Gordon, this is a Dark Buckeye; the FW diagonal bands are darkened, but still evident, so maybe a little Gray Buckeye mixed in.
