Kevin,

Ever gotten up to the Scott Bog region of northern Coos Co. NH?? That's the
only place that I know of in either VT or NH where the Hoary and Satyr
Commas are known from...also, the White Admiral seems to have only a single
flight (not two, but this has to be confirmed)...This latter fact, if true,
could be significant; I have never seen the butterfly up there in August...I
need to get specimens from there...

Alex
