Today -- the 27th of October is the latest edition of the Zebra Longwing
update, so I am starting a new thread.

This morning, Will Stuart forwarded me ANOTHER photo record of Zebra
Longwing in the s.w. Piedmont of NC. Yesterday (Oct. 26), Allison Pittman
photographed one in her yard in Stanley, *Gaston County!* Will forwarded a
still frame of a video to me. So, yesterday we had one in Gaston County
and another on the other side of Mecklenburg County in Union County!

So the 2020 NC Summary:
Rutherford -- 2 records
Gaston -- 1
Catawba -- 1
Union -- 1
Guilford -- 1

Six records in NC in 2020.

Also, in case Dennis Forsythe and others want and need to keep track of all
SC reports, I was sent a note -- just to me -- from Alice Clark, who saw
one yesterday on her farm in Lugoff, Kershaw County. "This afternoon
(October 26, around 4:00), one Zebra Longwing stayed in the garden with me,
nectaring primarily on lantana & checking out the cucumber & okra
blooms." I've sent Dennis her full e-mail.

There is quite a "sizable" population of this rare stray floating around --
pun intended! -- from s.w. NC southward to central SC, and of course more
along the SC coast at least n.e. to Murrells Inlet. Sure hope we don't get
any killing frosts any time soon!
