Subject: [NorWestLeps] Another book surprise - lesser frits

I was also surprised when reading another butterfly book that asserted the
lesser frit taxa butleri and grandis are "habitat forms"; claiming butleri
as a tundra bug and grandis as a forest bug. That is misleading because
butleri is NOT limited to tundra habitats in Alaska and Yukon. Note that
the butleri specimen I illustrated yesterday is from a forest population.
And grandis is not limited to forest habitat. These sympatric and
synchronic (flying together) Yukon specimens were not in forest habitat:

And in Alaska this example of grandis-butleri sympatry is also from
non-forest habitat
