Submitted by: coreyk
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: Ken Davenport
Verified date: June 14, 2014
Coordinator notes: Based on process of elimination, you should have ancilla but generally any coordinator will need more habitat, locality and associated buckwheats information to make an intelligent determination. In an ideal world we need actual specimens to genitalically confirm ID, but not allowable under Spring Mts. legal restrictions prohibiting insect collections-Ken Davenport.
