Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes:
Status: Resident
Verified by: stevecary
Verified date: March 16, 2023
Coordinator notes: This does not match Gold-costa, but you are in the right family. Rocky Mountain Duskywing is most likely, given the habitat, time of year, and lack of white HW fringe; but your photo does not show enough of the ventral hindwing to reveal the confirmatory mark. thanks for submitting!
