They had them in various places in Mass. last year too. They use members of the mallow family for host plants ( I believe, correct me if I'm wrong). Gee I've got to get out. Cloudless Sulpurs now this. Kevin

Subject: [VTLEPS] Checkered skippers

Someone told me today that they have seen a bunch of Checkered
Skippers about 50 miles sw of the SW border of VT. So, Folks down
that way, keep your eyes open for a state record vagrant.
