Hi Everyone,
=20
I am pleased to announce that, although I remain in absentia in Southern Ca=
lifornia, we shall run the "October Derby" again this year [rules below]. I=
t's always hard to predict how well we'll do. Last year was a rather good y=
ear [39 species]. 2012 remains record year, which will be difficult to matc=
h. But we came close last year, so who knows? Here's the history:=20
=20
MBC [Collectively] Me [Personally]=20
2006 34 species 22 species=20
2007 37 species 24 species=20
2008 32 species 20 species
2009 26 species 12 species
2010 33 species 14 species
2011 33 species 17 species
2012 42 species* 23 species
2013 35 species** 21 species
2014 28-30 species n/a
2015 33 species*** n/a
2016 39 species n/a


*Plus two additional larvae [pipevine swallowtail + giant swallowtail] =3D =
44!
**Plus three additional larvae [giant swallowtail + harvester + red-spotted=
purple] =3D 38
***Plus one additional larva [spicebush swallowtail] =3D 34
=20
With luck [no early killer frost], the club should look to book at least 30=
species. Given all the migrants reported so far in September of 2017, a re=
cord year is not out of the question. In general, personal targets of 15 or=
20 are reasonable, but require diligence. It's surprising how hard those l=
ast few species become.



To review the ground rules, on October 1, we wipe our species slate clean a=
nd see how many species we can turn up in Massachusetts during the month o=
f October. All you need do is post your sightings here on the MBC Listserv=
e, which most of you do anyway. I'll keep score and provide periodic update=
s, along with a final count at the end of the month.


This should be treated as a group project, purely for the fun of it. I'll b=
e posting the aggregate MBC list only, not individual ones. [I don't even k=
eep track of individual counts.] Because of budgetary limitations [namely n=
o budget] there are no prizes, aside from our collective satisfaction.


Remember, the derby begins at the stroke of midnight as Saturday, September=
30 becomes Sunday, October 1. Starting out on a weekend day will be an adv=
antage for 2017 since most sightings occur early in the month.=20


No need to send me separate communications [unless you don't post to MassLe=
p] - I'll be monitoring the MassLep postings and issuing frequent updates. =
=20


Finally, FYI, I append the list of last year's October species, of which th=
ere were 39.


Happy butterflying. Our fall meeting is on October 22, by which time we'll =
be pretty much done with the derby. [Of course, a good anglewing could turn=
up on any warm day in late October...]=20


Cheers,
Frank

* Per Harry Pavulaan via Sharon Stichter, there is a colony of European Pea=
cock that has gotten established near Montreal, PQ, so this could be a migr=
ant. Therefore, I'm counting it.


**Taxonomy be damned! Maybe not a true Northern Crescent. Maybe not a true =
Mimic Crescent. Not likely a Summer Crescent. But also unlikely to be a Pea=
rl Crescent. Until the clouds lift, in my official role as Unofficial Derby=
Taxonomist, I'm counting it.
