Location: Bauer-Brockway Barrens SNA
Jackson County

Surveyed the area south of the parking lot on West Bauer Road and a logging road found on the west side of South Brockway Road. Most of the Karners were found at the West Bauer area associated with the Sundail Lupine. Around 10-20 of the Karners were found at the South Brockway area, most of which were at puddles. We also found two Phlox Moths on the same plant together and two Northern Barrens Tiger Beetles along the path leading into the more forested area of the road.
