This looks like Saccharina (? Saccharina is Kelp, which grows in the ocean. Stanford is not on the beach.)

Anyone know if Timberlake might have used another language?
'92 = 1892
Was he "carryin' Karion carrion" 😃 ?
Sorry, Silver Falls State Park is in Marion County, not Karion.
Det EJK '58 at top.
Blotch looks like "Dog" to me. Synonym for "Leg"? (collector)
Ex="out of" (in Latin). Maybe caught on Gibson? 😃
#obscured, likely Big Dalton Dam
#handwriting possibly May 9, 34
#handwriting looks like Oroville?
I put sex (♂ or ♀) and "det. L.K. Gloyd 1975" (species determined by) in "other notes".
♂ & ♀, no bug seen: maybe mating pair?
#unknown-county because there are many lakes named "Round Lake" in Oregon!

Many early specimens give only month and year, no day-of-month, so I suspect this is April 1918.
L. Purissima in L. Cal
La Purisima in Baja Califorinia Sur
(Baja ~ Lower)
#handwriting looks like V-22
#unclear looks like Mazourka Cn. (for Mazourka Canyon)
#handwriting looks like barbigera
Gender symbol looks similar to but differs from ♀.
Do symbols differ for Female-Queen vs. Female-Worker ?
Guessing "Lagunas" = Laguna Mountains, San Diego County, California; I think I've seen other tags like this with more info.
Guessing year is 2000 not 1900 because it is written on clear plastic. (But it might not be the original tag.)

Powell uses "Santa Maria Valley (nr. San Quintin)" p5 (printed p29) [http://www.butterfliesofamerica.com/docs/Powell1958BC_1958_12_26.pdf]

#onbackoftag. Image editor: crop to tag; auto-level. Use mirror. All but first line legible:
San Diego Co., Calif.
20 May 1939
year? Looks like 1982, but then the Det. tag would precede it, so I'd have to guess 1962.
"G.R. Noonan, NO Collr" ??
Does this mean G.R. Noonan is not the collector?
60 years from collection to detection.
#error #toonarrow and date is obscured

Are there beavers at this beach??
untranscribable tag: A drawing? Or a map?
