Jeff Pippen just reminded me that -- Zebra LongTAIL is a fictitious
character, and it was in the subject line* and* in the body of Doug's text.

So, Doug, we assume you mean Zebra LongWING and not LongTAIL! Maybe we
should go back to the other Common name -- Zebra HELICONIAN -- that will
eliminate confusion!! At least I responded with the name of Zebra Longwing!
