There was a report earlier today of a "White Admiral=E2=80=9D from NC. This=
reminded me of a sighting of an apparent Viceroy x Red-Spotted Purple hybr=
id reported on iNaturalist last year.

Another unusual Limenitis sighting, this one from Dare County, is on the Bu=
tterflies of NC website (the first photo below the text).

This is described as an "aberrant morph=E2=80=9D on the web page, but I thi=
nk it may be the Florida subspecies Limenitis archippus floridensis which s=
omehow made its way north. See
