Acmon Blue

Plebejus acmon

Habitat:

I found this Acmon Blue on an abandoned logging road in North Plains, Oregon.

Notes:

I also spotted Applegate's milkvetch (Astragalus applegatei) as well as scattered Kincaid's lupine (Lupinus oreganus) and Birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus), which would have served as host plants for the caterpillars.
