What about PBR?
Thanks, Alex. We've known about Asterocampa sporadically in this area.
We've also had A. clyton not far from there. Hackberry has inroads along
the big rivers. It's very nice.
Best,
Bryan

Brian,

Go back, armed with plantain bananas, brown sugar, and GOOD beer (NOT
Bud, Bud Light, or anything like that slop)...They LOVE a mixture of
those things...Maybe you'll bring this one back, along with any others
that are near there...

This has worked GREAT in S Texas on Asterocampa...

Alex

Subject: Hackberry Emperor

Greetings, VTLepsters:

While looking for dragonflies, I noticed a Hackberry Emperor
(Asterocampa celtis) on the Huntington River just south of where it
dumps into the Winooski near Jonesville today (after the Vermont
Entomological Society insect walk at the Birds of Vermont Museum). It
dropped down to puddle in the mud for a bit, then, oddly for this
species, it was gone.

Best,
Bryan Pfeiffer
