Tried hard to get 20 species but settled on 19, although I could count the Harris’ Checkerspot caterpillars for 20. I think things are still late and am hoping missing species will be out in a week or so Dusted Skipper only encouraging find. Very worn Spring Azure and was lucky to get Zabulon mixed in with Hobomoks. One dark female Hobomok.
