Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America freely available. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: Several of these were observed in tall, dry grass and scotch broom (Cytisus scoparius). The bright blue body is scarcely visible in this view. Flying in midday, temp in 80s, within 1/4 mile of coast. Over two days, none were observed in association with any flowers present (Senecio, Solidago, Daucus, etc.).
