Speyeria adiaste clemensei is on my list for next year. I may try a four or five week trip to California to collect. I have been to California in the Spring and early summer. I think late May early June.
Any suggestion s?

This week was my spring break and I finally finished pinning my papered Speyeria. I have been fortunate to get some very nice examples, my collection now has all 16 species of Speyeria found in the USA. Enjoy the photos.
Drawer #1 S. aphrodite, S. cybele, S. diana, S. edwardsii, S. nokomis.
Drawer #2 S. adiaste, S. atlantis, S. callippe, S. carolae, S. coronis, S. egleis, S. hesperis, S. hydaspe, S. idalia, S. mormonia, S. zerene.
S. carolae(2♂) - This one took me the longest to acquire
Some of my favorites - S. idalia occidentalis(♀♂) and S. diana(♀♂)

A very impressive accomplishment Tim !! I have only got four of the species myself; those being cybele, idalia, diana, and aphrodite. Looking at your two drawers of these wonderful butterflies I can now see all of the nice varied species present here in North America. Far better than opening up three or four books at once to see them. Bravo...
