   65-75 Eyed Browns at one site in Grand Isle today, 26 July,
Of 4 larva kept in the house all winter, 1 broke diapause early,
growing green, pupating, then eclosing as an adult in May. 
2 eclosed in June.
After the fourth larva fed and molted, it stayed tan, feeding
for a while more, eventually re-entering diapause for two more months.
Now, it's finally green, large, and matured — all ready to pupate.
A fifth larva that wintered on my porch grew to fly at the proper time of early July.
