LOCATION: located females at Leidy Peak, Uintah County, Utah, 2 July 2012 - Todd Stout
ELEVATION: 11,600 feet, 3536 meters
Females laid eggs in the afternoon under lamp light inside a small container lined with paper and a lid with chiffon with a strip of brown paper toweling across one edge. I put a few blades of Kentucky Blue Grass in the bottom of the container.
Ovum: Oviposited 3rd, 4th, 5th of July 2012
Larva: #1 hatched 14 July 2012 -11 days
Hibernation: Overwinters as
HOST PLANT : Larvae accepted Poa pratensis - Blue Grass but didn't thrive. After a while they just wouldn't eat but they didn't hibernate. I found out that the native grass used that is at Murdock Mountain where Magdalena flies in Utah is probably Festuca brachyphylla per Dale Nielson.
