Indian Massacre Rd. off 346 almost to the NY border in Pownal is good. I have been seeing them throughout Bennington Co.Kevin

  Anyone have a good reliable locale for the Gray Comma "summer form"??? Scott
  Bog (along the logging roads) in northern Coos Co. NH is a great spot for
  the species, but I don't feel like driving so far this weekend; plus I'm
  overdue on a visit to Vermont...

  Subject: Re: [VTLEPS] "Northern Crescents" and Wilsons Mills bog

  Re the "Northern Crescents"...I suspect that they are not Northern
  Crescents
  (*Phyciodes cocyta*)...It is likely too early for *cocyta*...What folks
  are
  probably seeing is the "Diminutor" Crescent, P. *diminutor...(Whatever
  that
  is)...

  James Scott named and described *diminutor* in his "Papilio" series of
  Papers (# 10, Feb. 20, 1998)...*Diminutor* is multiple-brooded (whereas
  *cocyta* is probably single-brooded)...and is quite similar to
  *cocyta*...
  (Scott, I think, actually lists it as a subspecies of *cocyta*, but how
  can
  it be when it is sympatric with it???)...

  I can send a copy of the paper to whomever wants it...or it can be
  ordered
  direct from Scott for $4 (Maybe it's better not to have a copy but the
  paper
  itself)...Order it (and any of the others, plus there is an earlier
  Phyciodes paper...) from Dr. Scott as follows:

  James A. Scott
  60 Estes St.
  Lakewood, CO 80226

  *Diminutor* (males...females to me cannot be distinguished) has the VHW
  marginal patch darker, with darker, more conspicuous crescents...also
  the
  VHW is more golden, brighter orange yellow...*cocyta* has the marginal
  patch
  tan, not brown, crescents and the entire VHW are more "washed out"...The
  two
  have a different "look"...I have taken *cocyta* at Streaked Mountain,
  Oxford
  Co., Maine in mid-July, and north of Portland in early July...early June
  is
  just too early for it, in my opinion...again, I suspect that folks are
  seeing *diminutor*...

  Along Rt. 16 south of Errol, NH yesterday, I took a Crescent...this is
  probably *diminutor*...By the way, at the Wilsons Mills bog (Rt. 16
  north of
  Errol, 1.4 miles over the NH border into Maine on the right side of the
  hwy
  going north, Jutta Arctic (*Oeneis jutta ascerta*) was plentiful, Bog
  Fritillary (*Boloria eunomia dawsonii*) males are just beginning their
  flight (in another 4-5 days they will be all over the bog)...A single
  Eastern Pine Elfin (*Incisalia niphon clarkii*) was seen...along with
  numerous moths...
