Submitted by: plex1ppus
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Seen by my Daughter, Lela, very near Iceberg Lake, Glacier NP
Status: Resident
Verified by: J_Martineau
Verified date: April 24, 2024
Coordinator notes: Without seeing underside of wings it's hard to be 100% sure, which is likely why you haven't heard anything from iNaturalist, but given your image and location I'm fairly confident in the ID. Also, I think you're right and the species name has changed to damoetus.
