Great report Ken. We weren=E2=80=99t too far away from you last week. (I =
arrived home earlier tonight after spending the last day and a half at the =
LepSoc meeting in Davis.)

=20

Tony Jones and I were in Iron County following the 4th of July count at Bry=
ce Canyon National Park with Robb Hannawacker. Tony and I vouchered Plebej=
us saepiolus gertschi adults later that day where females laid eggs on Trif=
olium at 9500=E2=80=99 along UT 143 near MM 25. At elevation, we saw Thory=
bes mexicana; not Thorybes pylades; but, you may have been lower for pylade=
s. We were looking for topotypical Euphdyras anicia alena to compare contr=
ast early stages with other populations of Euphydryas anicia in the state. =
No luck even though I obtained a female Euphydryas anicia alena near MM 2=
5 in the late 199o=E2=80=99s. We found eggs of Euchloe ausonides and Ponti=
a protodice on Arabis glabra.

=20

You mentioned Pontia protodice being abundant. They seem to be blowing up =
all over the state where it=E2=80=99s counterpart, Pontia beckeri is oddly =
absent even though they share distribution, voltinism, and host plants over=
a broad area of the state. Go figure.

=20

Phyciodes tharos riocolorado is basically a Grand County bug found in the v=
icinity of Moab. Can you provide data for your P. tharos adult? We are co=
mpiling data for a book on the state. How large is your tharos compared to=
cocyta? P. tharos riocolorado is quite small compared to cocyta or even o=
ther tharos.

=20

The next time you venture into our area, please let us know. I live in Sal=
t Lake City; but, Tony is our official Iron County researcher and will cont=
inue to work the area with diligence now that he=E2=80=99s moved to St. Geo=
rge. I drove past Cedar Canyon Campground on July 4th; but, didn=E2=80=99t=
stop. Hemiargus isola is having a stronger than normal flight in Southern=
Utah with eggs/caterpillars found on Dalea searlsiae and even Eriogonum ov=
alifolium; which is an unusual host plant for that butterfly. I just had a=
n adult H. isola emerge this evening that fed on Eriogonum ovalifolium=E2=
=80=94again very odd. Although the caterpillars were not Euphilotes, I tho=
ught they were Celastrina and weren=E2=80=99t.=20

=20

That=E2=80=99s cool you found H. ceraunus considering how much isola has od=
dly outnumbered it this year. We=E2=80=99ve also had Nathalis iole make so=
me stronger northward migrations this year than normal. Danaus gilippus ha=
s also flown stronger this year as compared to other years.

=20

I found Oeneis chryxus on wing June 29 at Huntington Canyon along UT Hwy 13=
2.=20=20

=20

I would love data on Euphilotes spaldingi as we found Plebejus lupini and N=
eominois ridingsi stretchi near Bryce Canyon flying in association with Eri=
ogonum umbellatum and Eriogonum racemosum, the latter of which is usually a=
ssociated with Euphilotes spaldingi.=20=20=20

Thx, Todd

=20=20

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.

=20

Butterflies seen:

Northern Cloudywing (Thorybes pylades): 1 or 2

Rocky Mountain Duskywing (Erynnis telemachus)-a couple.

Golden Skipper (Poanes taxiles)-a half dozen or so.

Sonoran Skipper (Polites sonora)-2, 1 vouchered. Not spread so a misidentif=
ication is possible.

Western Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio rutulus)

Two-Tailed Swallowtail (Papilio multicaudatus)-seen sparingly

Pale Swallowtail (Papilio eurymedon)-1 seen

Margined White (Pieris marginalis pallidissima)- 2 or 3 seen.

Checkered White (Pontia protodice)-abundant

Orange Sulphur (Colias eurytheme)-2 seen, 1 caught and released on hopes it=
might be Colias occidentalis psudochristina, a species I did find on the S=
alt Creek Trail up from Bear Canyon the next day.

Behr's Hairstreak (Satyrium behrii)-2 or 3, not yet common.

Ceraunus Blue (Hemiargus ceraunus gyas)-one vouchered, others seen

Melissa Blue (Plebejus Melissa melissa)-1

Azure (Celastrina echo?)- a few

Western Tailed Blue (Cupido amyntula)-very pallid, almost unmarked, several

Greenish Blue (Icaricia saepiolus probably gertschii)-hundreds at higher le=
vels at top of mountain

=20

Variegated Fritillary (Euptoieta claudia)-1

Mourning Cloak (Nymphalis antiopa)-several

Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui)-common

Buckeye (Junonia grisea)-2, not sampled.

Dark Buckeye (Junonia nigrosuffusa)-this was very fresh and no question wha=
t 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 riocolora=
do, but I collected 4. I have also found Northern Pearl Crescents in this c=
anyon, and may have seen one today.

Field Crescent (Phyciodes pulchella camillus)-only one found

Northwest Fritillary (Speyeria hesperis chitone)- two seen lower down, too =
early higher up.

Weidemeyer's Admiral (Limenitis weidemeyerii latifascia)-common

Arizona Sister (Adelpha eulalia)-seen while trying to voucher the Dark Buck=
eye. I saw the orange tips closely as it flew over a Juniper.

=20

I had hopes of finding Chryxus Arctics higher up as Richard Meyer has fo=
und them abundant there. But no luck. I did better with those at my favorit=
e rest stop off I-70 yesterday where I have found about 70 species along th=
e frontage road there. I would never have believed I would find Spalding's =
Blue flying with chryxus and Riding's Satyr! But it happened yesterday!
