Thanks, Harry P. for your detailed observations. We can always use more
coastal reports. We do get Taylor Piephoff's records from OIB in mid or
late May every year, but not much at other times of the year on the
Brunswick islands. We do get lots of seasonal reports from the Fort Fisher
area in adjacent New Hanover County. Here are some comments, with the
Butterflies of North Carolina website maps and records on my other screen:

Brazilian Skipper: Hmmm. Yes, we had a HUGE (unprecedented actually) year
for adults in 2018 in NC, and as the winter was reasonably benign, we still
don't expect many larvae/pupae to survive NC winters. But, there have been
maybe two reports of adults in NC already, so =E2=80=A6. we shall see what =
unfolds
in 2019.

Yucca Giant-Skipper: not surprised. Seemingly not a good year for it in
NC (adults in spring), but not that many people are looking anymore, so
hard to know.

Giant Swallowtail: This seems to be a NEW site for it -- congrats. There
are other Brunswick records, mostly for Bald Head Island, but only a few to
the west. Very rare for anyone to see MORE Giants than Palamedes over a
few day period!

Cloudless Sulphur: Go figure. Not sure if anyone in NC should be alarmed
-- yet.

Juniper (Olive) Hairstreak: Well, many of us know this already, and we
have plenty of these coastal records, all associated with J. salicicola --
if that is a good species.

White-M Hairstreak: Always a good, and unpredictable, find.

Eastern Pygmy-Blue: Well, you ain't the first one who has tried to find
EPB in this area of coastal NC! Bo Sullivan, Steve Hall, Jeff Pippen, Derb
Carter, Will Cook, Randy Emmitt, probably Taylor Piephoff, myself -- shall
I go on? And, in fact, I've tried several times at that same spot -- just
west of the OIB bridge -- where there is great access to both Salicornia
and some good nectar plants in late summer and fall, especially Limonium,
which EPB uses for nectar in coastal SC. Of course, we have also
tried farther west at Sunset Beach, though I don't know if any of us have
gone over to Bird "Island", which I think has now been connected to Sunset
Beach for a few years and folks can now walk there. EPB uses Batis as a
hostplant in lower SC south into FL, and we have no Batis in NC; that could
be a limiting factor, but I am pretty sure they also use Salicornia, which
we have plenty of (3 species) here in NC. No -- we haven't given up, but
=E2=80=A6.. with "all of these hurricanes" -- we would expect a stray now =
and then!

Hackberry Emperor: As you surmised, this is a *NEW county record,* not
only for Brunswick but for any coastal NC county (except a vague one for
Hyde County). Congrats! Celtis does range to Brunswick and a few other
coastal NC counties, but for whatever reason the butterfly species seems to
stick to brownwater river floodplains -- like the Cape Fear and Roanoke --
into the central C.P. and not getting to the coast.

Queen: Always nice to be found anywhere in NC other than at Fort Fisher,
where we get a few records about every summer and fall. Yes, a bit early
in the season, but John Taggart has reported it several times already in
2019 at Fort Fisher. Maybe a good year for it in NC??
