Description

Concealed in a grassy vernal meadow surrounded by Teaberry trees and Poison Oak these A. fascicularias weren't nearly as vital and vigorous as the fascicularis I found on Figueroa Mountain in early May, as More Mesa is located ~80' above sea level, and the fascicularis I found in the mountains were at 2,500' and in what appeared to be considerably more verdant than dusty More Mesa. Rainfall this season was only 41% of normal; 2013 was 46%, and 2012 was 66%, so the drought is stressing the plants. No monarch eggs, larva, nor adults were observed on this native California monarch food source.
