Adult Female photos right after eclosure
was extracted by Todd Stout on April of 2005 from Taylor Canyon
on the West side of the Wasatch Mountains, elevation of 5300
feet, 1.3 miles North Northeast of Weber State University, Weber
County, Utah. When this pupa began breaking diapause in February
of 2006, Todd sent it to me so I could watch its development. It
was kept at a temperature of approximately 75 degrees F., lights on
12-14 hours per day and window shutters open but with no direct
adult eclosed mid- morning of February 11, 2006 and was placed
in a dark cupboard to allow the wings to harden in a safe place.
On February 12th I was able to photograph her safely.
The Type Locality of A. julia browningi is
City Creek Canyon, Salt Lake County, Utah; Skinner.
