GREAT NEWS! A brand new species has been found in the Puente-Chino Hills Wildlife Corridor. It is in the same family as the California Poppy—the state flower (Eschscholzia californica)—but due to its white appearance it is called the “Ghost Poppy.” Its scientific name is Eschscholzia albinicus. Since this is such a rare find, if you do see it please be sure to photograph it, document your location, and report it on iNaturalist. It’s a day to celebrate–April Fool’s!
