Thanks for all your replies so far,


First Tom:

Sure, I can get you estimates for numbers. For the experiment raising cater=
pillars, I'd be looking to catch 10-20 females (of each species, if availab=
le) once (maybe twice if something goes horribly wrong and I have to restar=
t).

For regular monitoring, I'd be looking to catch 5-10 of either sex (althoug=
h biased towards males) every one to two weeks.


Second, Salman:

That's good to hear. Good luck with the count this weekend. If you find any=
particular good spots during it, and can let me know where, that would be =
great. You're description of the timing of their abundance sounds about lik=
e what i would expect.


Any other leads anyone has are still appreciated, and thanks again for the =
help!


Best,

Matthew

Mathew,

Please provide some specifics about the numbers that you need for each aspe=
ct of your project. I butterfly on private property and before I speak to=
the owner, I need more details.
