Hi... With Pam Hunt's permission I'm forwarding the below message originally sent to the NH bird and dragonfly listservs in hopes that some of you VT lepsters might have records from across the border to help get a butterfly survey going in NH. Terry and I had NH records for a couple of the species on the list; perhaps some of you can help with others. Thanks, Karen Kluge Hanover, NH Begin forwarded message: From: Pamela Hunt <[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>> Date: April 23, 2013 4:00:43 PM EDT To: NHDS <[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>>, <[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>> Cc: Vanessa Jones <[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>> Subject: [NHBirds] Looking for Butterfly Data! Reply-To: <[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>> Greetings Bird and Dragonfly Enthusiasts, NH Audubon is currently compiling data on butterfly distributions in the state as a prelude to a statewide butterfly survey (yes, we're finally getting hopeful it may happen by next year). We've gone through the UNH collection, got many records from Harvard's MCZ, and even incorporated some individual datasets. After all this, we've identified a handful of species we think occur in NH but for which we have no data. Given that many ode and bird folks also keep an eye or camera out for butterflies in their travels, you may have actually encountered some of these species! If so, we'd REALLY like to know. The key information will be the location (at least to town, if possible), date, observer(s), and type of record (visual, photo, specimen). Any other details, including lat-long, are also welcome. Pipevine Swallowtail Battus philenor Southern Dogface Zerene cesonia Cherry Gall Azure Celastrina serotina (this is a recent split off the Spring Azure) Hessel's Hairstreak Callophrys hesseli White M Hairstreak Parrhasium m-album American Snout Libytheana carinenta Bog Fritillary Boloria eunomia Tawny Emperor Asterocampa clyton Tawny Crescent Phyciodes batesii Jutta Arctic Oeneis jutta Hoary Edge Achalarus lyciades Broad-winged Skipper Poanes viator Information should be sent to Vanessa Jones ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>). And while I've got you all, if anyone has a larger data set they'd like to share, we'd still be happy to incorporate it in our analysis. Contact Vanessa for more details. Thanks in advance, and happy spring, Pam Pamela D.
