Mission Blue & Silver Lupine
Mission Blue (Icaricia icarioides missionensis) & Siver Leaf Lupine (Lupinus albifrons)

This mission blue was spotted in April on San Bruno Mountain resting on its host plant, silver leaf lupine. The mission blue received
federal protection as an endangered species in 1976. It has managed to survive due to the constant battle of conservationists against habitat
loss. To learn more about our local endangered species, where to see them and how to help save them visit www.ggnrabigyear.org.
