Sighting for July 19, 2019

John and Nancy Crosby

Sinks Canyon Loop State Park near Lander, WY
Fremont County, WY

Elevation 8500 - 10,000’. We found most of the butterflies on hillsides or hilltops. Lots of great habitat so we were here two days. We are submitting a photo of an unidentified woodnymph that has large spots on the hindwing in the ventral shot unlike anything in the field guides. None of the sulphurs slowed for a photo nor could be ID’ed but we tried at Windy Point Meadow on the way up.
