Bear Cove 1
; it was reported in 2007 by Dr James. Since it was not described in the 2007 report, it will be included in this discussion. Joan St. Hilaire found 15 newly emerged Mardon skipper males on June 16, 2008. Five were caught for species verification. Their colors were bright and they had a fuzzy appearance. All Mardons were found between the false hellebore patch and FS RD 1200. All were observed resting/basking; two were on the false hellebore. This was a large meadow with a dispersed camp site on the south end. Mardons were using a small portion of the north end of this meadow. The area Mardons were using had fescue and sedges present with several exposed bare ground openings. Xerces and WDFW staff returned on June 24, 2008 and observed 13 individuals with wing wear.
