  If id’d correctly ???, about 15 of each in Grand Isle --
the Appalachian Browns associated with woodland and mosquitoes.

http://community.webshots.com/photo/38688780/44873828PMHwlN
 Four samples (perhaps with regional or hybrid characteristics?):
#3243 = Eyed Brown.              #7-24E = Eyed Brown
#3242 = Appalachian Brown.   #7-24x may be an intergrade?

[A] = Characteristic of Appalachian Brown.
[E] = Characteristic of Eyed Brown (from Glassberg book).

#3242 “Appalachian” Brown -- collected within wet mature woodland.
[A] upf dark area extensive, almost touches submarginal spots.
[A] unh basal line straight into cell; unf median line relatively smooth.
[A] unf eye-spots not equal in size.
[E] unf eye-spots surrounded as a group by white outlines.
[E] unh submarginal eye-spot white outlines are connected.

#3243 “Eyed” Brown -- collected in grass & sedge pasture near pond.
[E] upf dark area not as extensive as 3242 and is distant from spots.
[E] unh basal line zigzag at cell; (but unf median line is similar to 3242).
[E] unf eye-spots relatively equal in size.
[E] unf eye-spots surrounded as a group by white.
[A] unh submarginal bulls-eyes are widely SEPARATED.

#7-24E Light tan like an “Eyed” Brown. Abundant on 7/24/02.
[E] upf dark area not as extensive as 7-24x
[E] unh basal line zigzag; but unf median line relatively smooth..
[E] top four (of FIVE) unf eye-spots relatively equal in size.
[E] unf eye-spots surrounded as a group by white.
[A] unh submarginal bulls-eyes are relatively separate.

#7-24x Smoky-colored like an “Appalachian” Brown. Small specimen - unique.
[A] upf dark area more extensive than 7-24E, nearly touches eye-spots.
[E] unh basal line zigzag at cell; unf median line unique, STRONGLY zigzag.
[E] unf E-spots relatively equal in size.
[E] unf eye-spots surrounded as a group by white.
[E] unh submarginal eye-spots connected by very WIDE white outlines.

#3242 & 43 not photo'd at the same time -- not for color comparison.
Collected on 7/10/2002. “Appalachian” Brown’s color was smokier?
#7-24E & 24x collected 7-24 in grass/sedge pasture w/
scattered shrubs & small trees, near marsh & woodland.
Some of the other Eyed Browns netted and released on 7/24
had proper finely-sawtoothed unf median lines.
======================================
Common Wood Nymph females (n = 20+).
Unh eye-spots vary in number -- from 6 to 2 --
or (on the lightest specimen) none.

Northern Pearly Eye
1999   80% (n = 05) had five unf eye-spots.
2002 >80% (n = 30+) have five unf eye-spots
  (one with five on one side, four on the other).
Later individuals, wings might be a different shape,
and 3rd unf spot smaller than 4th.
