Notes:
A 3 hour+ search was conducted by myself and Reese Huddleston throughout the entire drainage basin where this species was recorded to have a breeding population. We searched from 1000-0 ft above sea level with no individuals observed. The weather was partly cloudy with temperatures ranging from 64-74 degrees F throughout the search. water flow was sporadic above the ranch but a constant flow was observed below the old dam. Hypochondriaca were present in larval form throughout the drainage wherever there was water. This is the second such search conducted by myself within the last 2 years which yielded the same results. I hope to try again next year. around the same time with better results.
