Very interesting! The only two reports/records for Zebra Longwing in NC in
2020 have both come from Rutherford County, in the s.w. Piedmont, rather
than near the coast. I just got sent this a few minutes ago from Martyn
Watts:

"My wife and I saw a Zebra Longwing Butterfly on a Buddleia Bush in our
garden in Lake Lure, Rutherford County NC on Oct 1st. Unfortunately the
camera had a flat battery so I could not get a picture."

There was an iNaturalist photo from Rutherfordton on August 29 of this
year. It is highly unlikely that this would be the same individual, but
one must wonder if the August one was responsible for producing a new brood
in that county. I think there have been one or two records in 2020 from
upstate SC, and of course lots of them in coastal SC as far north as
Murrells Inlet a few days ago. Ought to be a few of them in southern
coastal NC now.
