Harry,

With the data being incorrect, how do we know that the photo is valid? Perhaps it was lifted from another site.

Believe it or not -- there was still ANOTHER Zebra Longwing photographed in NC. This time the butterfly was, not surprisingly, quite worn, indicating it must have done a lot of traveling and been around outdoors for a good bit -- i.e., not fresh out of a butterfly house. This is a first record for Scotland County, though the reporter intentionally fudged the coordinates for security reasons and the dot shows up well into South Carolina. It was photographed today.


Here is the photo and the messy data -- wrong time of day, wrong location, etc. Thankfully this person didn't want to include her or his name -- great record, clear photo, but sloppy data. (Salman Abdulali brought this report to my attention a few minutes ago.)
