Lasioglossum boreale, F, Side, NH, Coos County
New Hampshire...The White Mountains...Mount Washington....at the very top is tundra a small remnant of what was more extensive in the cold post glacial times and still harbors arctic species like this Lasioglossum boreale. At this point this is the only location that has had this species in New England. Perhaps it is elsewhere, but not found or overlooked, more investigations are needed.
