Neil: I have never collected American Coppers on Mt. Howard or in Oregon. =
I have collected about 24 American Coppers at Sonora Pass and up an avalanc=
he slope on the north facing slope of the Dana Plateau in the Sierra Nevada=
. Some comments: All my records were from about mid-July to September 7 or =
8. Yes they live on rocky terrain but not necessarily on talus. Usually the=
y favor areas along small streams or drainages where the hosts grow but the=
y often go to small flats or spaces between boulders which shelter them fro=
m winds that are common in their preferred habitats. They are often on stee=
p slopes where terrain is difficult in terms of footing.

While I do find Rockslide Checkerspots (Chlosyne whitneyi) in the Sierra N=
evada use talus slopes in drier situations, American Coppers tend to fly wh=
en snow is still around a little more than the checkerspots. At Sonora Pass=
, I get some American Coppers flying with the Rockslide Chckerspots in deep=
rocky canyons where the host grows. At my other locality above Ellery Lake=
in the Sierra, Rockslide Checkerspots are scarce.

Usually in my quests for American Coppers, I get zero, one or two, never m=
ore sightings than 5 above Ellery Lake. At Sonora Pass if you hit them righ=
t, I have taken 6 and 10 in a day in July. Of course, habits and habitats m=
ay differ in Oregon.

Hello all! Mike Hansen from Enterprise and I made another search for Amer=
ican Copper (Lycaena phlaeas) around the summit of Mt. Howard in Wallowa Co=
unty a couple weeks back. We did not find the butterfly or the host plant =
where Don and Paul Severns found it quite a few years ago. We timed our se=
arch to be slightly earlier in the season than theirs.

You can find more details and many photos in my Blog at:

May you and yours be safe from fires, smoke and viruses!
