Pink-edged Sulphur
Colias interior

Observation date: July 06, 2013
Submitted by: ellenjones6
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: layberry
Verified date: March 22, 2014
Coordinator notes: This specimen does not have the series of dark spots on the underside of both wings, like the Clouded and Orange Sulphurs. So it must be a Pink-Edged Sulphur. I presume that the pic was taken in a habitat containing blueberry, a bog, a dry sandy area, or a high rocky ridge. Ross Layberry
