Yes, I would spend 4 days collecting or observing butterflies in Utah, chec=
king out Cedar Canyon, Iron County, Utah for about my 4th or 5th time, the =
season well behind normal flights. Despite that, I did see some unusual but=
terflies for the state. The date was July 2nd, 2019.
Butterflies seen:Northern Cloudywing (Thorybes pylades): 1 or 2Rocky Mounta=
in Duskywing (Erynnis telemachus)-a couple.Golden Skipper (Poanes taxiles)-=
a half dozen or so.Sonoran Skipper (Polites sonora)-2, 1 vouchered. Not spr=
ead so a misidentification is possible.Western Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio r=

dissima)- 2 or 3 seen.Checkered White (Pontia protodice)-abundantOrange Sul=

uestion what it was, very elusive and wary, getting out from under the rim =
of my net.Pearl Crescent (Phyciodes tharos)-I am not sure if these would be=
riocolorado, but I collected 4. I have also found Northern Pearl Crescents=
in this canyon, and may have seen one today.Field Crescent (Phyciodes pulc=

flew over a Juniper.

my favorite rest stop off I-70 yesterday where I have found about 70 specie=
