Observation date: July 12, 2011
Submitted by: Steven Daniel
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I had forgotten this sighting until I was going through my photos. Interesting to see it on rose pogonia. There were plenty of sedges here, but the listed host plant, Carex trichocarpa, does not grow here, so it is clearly using other species.
