In search of Southern Pearly Eye and Gemmed Satyr, I followed
recommendations and hit up I=E2=80=99On Swamp yesterday and today. Conditi=
ons were
70s-low 80s with dappled sunlight along the forest trails.

4/6 930AM - 2PM
Palamedes ST 10+
Eastern Tiger ST 7
Falcate Orange Tip 3, all male
Cloudless Sulphur 2
Red-Banded HS 1
Henry=E2=80=99s Elfin 2
Pearl Crescent 10+
Polygonia sp
>>>Southern Pearly Eye 2

Carolina and/or Intricate Satyr 10+ Still looking through pics to see
whether any are good candidates for Intricate.

Little Wood Satyr 10+ The appearance of LWS here is much darker and
redder than near me in Maryland. I=E2=80=99m a little surprised it doesn=
=E2=80=99t rise to
the level of ssp difference.

Juvenal=E2=80=99s DW 2
Zabulon 1
Clouded Skipper 2
>>>Roadside Skipper, probably Reversed 1

Also 8-Spotted Forester Moth and a couple of other species - a Renia, a
Geometrid, and some microleps.


4/7 9AM-12PM
Palamedes ST 10+
Eastern Tiger ST 3
Cloudless Sulphur 1
Red-Banded HS 9
Henry=E2=80=99s Elfin 5
Pearl Crescent 10+
Carolina/Intricate Satyr 10+ All after 11AM
Little Wood Satyr 10+
>>> Gemmed Satyr 5ish. I only hunted down 5 out of about 10 candidates for
verification. All found along I=E2=80=99On Swamp Trail. All before 11AM.
>>> Southern PE 2
Juvenal=E2=80=99s DW 2
Clouded Skipper 1

More moths, including one that got taken by a damselfly while I was trying
to photograph it.

A huge thanks to Salman Abdulali and Dennis Forsythe for helping make this
happen. I=E2=80=99ve been hoping to see Gemmed Satyr for several decades.
