Mead=s Sulphur (LEP38c) Colias meadii
This species obtained its name from a lepidopterist who discovered it in Colorado. This brilliant sulphur flies in high mountain tundra. The wings are colored deep orange with jet black borders. The eyes are green, and the furry scales around the head are bright pink, as is the fringe of the wings. The showy daisy is a favorite nectar flower.
