Coordinator notes: Great record! The first September record ever reported (but few go to High Sierras after August) and LATE for this species, STATE and USA. This record is a publishable record in the California early/late publication and can go into the 2011 Season Summary, both of which I author or coordinate. 31 August was previous latest.
