Subject: [VA-MD-DE-Bugs] New Quad "heat map" function available at MBP

Our friends and colleagues at The Maryland Biodiversity Project
<https://www.marylandbiodiversity.com>have announced the latest in a suite
of cool tools on the site that will allow Maryland butterfliers to target
relatively unknown (from a butterfly perspective) counties and USGS quads
for some special attention.

The tool lets you filter for category of taxon -- in this case, butterflies
-- and displays the quads of Maryland from bright red to deep blue. The
red quads are those where most of the collecting and observations have been
concentrated; most of Howard Co., Soldier's Delight, Finzel Swamp, Green
Ridge State Forest, Montgomery Co. But a shocking number of USGS quads in
MD are deepest blue -- they have ZERO butterfly records associated with
them in the MBP database. This includes many of the upper tier counties
that border PA, lower Garrett Co., and the lower Eastern Shore.

Check out the heat maps for butterflies and moths and read about plans for
some "quad-busting" field trips this summer on LepLog:
