This is a bit outdated now, but on a trip to Ferdinand Bog on Wed July 7,
mainly walking on the woods road surrounding the bog itself, I had the
following leps:

Can. Tiger Swallowtail -- 2
Clouded Sulphur -- 7
Aphrodite Fritillary -- 1
Atlantis Fritillary -- 3
Speyeria sp. -- 7
Northern/Pearl Crescent -- 10
Baltimore Checkerspot -- 1
White Admiral -- 13
Viceroy -- 1
No. Pearly Eye -- 1
Little Wood Satyr -- 5
Common Ringlet -- 6
European Skipper -- 6
Tawny-edged Skipper -- 2
Long Dash -- 1
Little Glassywing -- 2
Hobomok Skipper -- 2
Unid. skipper -- 4

Unable to find either Bog Copper or Bog Fritillary, but the bog mat itself
is shrub-dominated, rather than Shagnum or sedge.
