Submitted by: MAKI
Specimen type: Photograph

Status: Resident
Verified by: Ken Davenport
Verified date: October 13, 2013
Coordinator notes: I can't be 100% sure, but this looks like a Hesperia columbia with a more developed spot band than usual. The date does not fit Hesperia colorado. Columbia Skippers are avid hilltoppers.
