Rocky Mountain Duskywing
Erynnis telemachus

Observation date: May 25, 2023
Submitted by: Janet Ruth
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: nectaring on some dandelions; then flew into wood edge and spread its wings per the photo; not photo of the underside
Status: Resident
Verified by: stevecary
Verified date: May 26, 2023
Coordinator notes: Pacuvius has a white HW fringe. Meridianus is the tougher option, where the VHW photo is helpful. at this elevation, though, Rocky Mountain is likely. lots of host Gambel Oak at Capulin spring.
