Bryan,

This is what I wrote a little while ago on the subject of Tiger Swallowtails at Mount Washington, New Hampshire, on NE Leps:

>>>The name "canadensis" almost seems to be a garbage can into which to drop whatever "Tiger" one sees in the Canadian Zone around Mount Washington. One small female, fairly worn, has the submarginal light spots below almost separate, as in glaucus. She does not have the "look" of a typical canadensis. We missed a similar perched almost fresh male, which was missing a part of its hindwing. We have previously found unusual Tigers up and down the Auto Road in the 1st half of July, some with curious concave FW margins as in rutulus, others small and more like a tiny "glaucus" or "glaucus X appalachiensis"....One at least that was taken up there at Pinkham Notch looks like it came from the West (like a rutulus male). One has to bear in mind the actions of the glaciers, which did bring northwestern material into the northeast.<<<

There are also strange Clouded Sulphurs at Mount Washington, both on the bottom at Pinkham Notch, and in the Subarctic Zone. On Saturday, Matt Arey and I found them flying over blueberry barrens on the bottom; this is a practice that I have previously clearly noticed in early August at 4700 feet. What are Clouded Sulphurs doing flying over blueberry barrens?? The very fine Alberta/ B.C. Lepidopterist Norbert Kondla has informed me in response to photos of some of these high altitude "philodice" that they look like they are some sort of "mixture" of philodice with interior (? I don't know how THAT can be) and also regarding another specimen, a female from 4700 ft., that the specimen is a " 'something'...It is a 'something' because it doesn't look like anything..." (en quote). This is, again, from a Western Canadian veteran Lepidopterist who knows a thing or two about Boreal Colias. There are also unusual "philodice" to be found at the Scott Bog region (Moose Alley) in extreme northern New Hampshire, at +/- 2000 ft. elevation.

We clearly do NOT know everything about our "bugs" in northern New England.

And regarding the Baltimores, which are known as single brood bugs, how do you have a flight in central Maine in early June, followed by a second flight in early July; or a flight of fresh males at Wilson Mills, Maine in mid-June, and another apparent flight at Pinkham Notch, NH in mid-July; and a flight in southeastern Vermont (low elevation) in mid-late July? This all doesn't add up. On top of that there are different phenotypes among all of these....

Although I recognize this practice isn't for everyone, I try to collected tiger swallowtails I see in July and August here in Vermont (and elsewhere in the north).
We still have so much to learn!

By the way, I spent some quality time with Baltimore Checkerspots (/Euphydryas phaeton/)-in every stage of life-last week:

Best,
