Everyone: A couple of years back someone on line joked about what one could=
catch while holding a net outside a plane while flying.=C2=A0 I remembered=
just such an event and today I found the article in the Journal of the Lep=
idopterist's Society Volume 19 Number 3 in 1965 entitled "Review of collect=
ions of Lepidoptera by airplane" by Perry A. Glick.=C2=A0 The plane was a P=
iper Cub plane and on other occasions various old army planes with a net wi=
red in under the wings by struts of the plane with net in collecting positi=
on at end of tracks.=C2=A0 Most insects collected were moths or other type =
of insects but these butterflies were listed in the article (all in Louisia=
na)
Orange Sulphur (Colias eurytheme)=C2=A0 altitude 50 feet
Pearl Crescent (Phyciodes tharos): altitude 50 feetBuckeye (Junonia coenia)=
-altitude 200 feetStreaky Skipper (Celotes nessus) altitude 20 feetSilver-S=
potted Skipper (Epargyreus clarus)-altitude 600 feetLeonard's Skipper (Hesp=
eria leonarus) altitude 20 feerClouded Skipper (Lerema accius) altitude 200=
feetEudala Skipper (Lerodea eufala)- altitude 200 feet.
