Folks,

I'm just now reviewing iNaturalist photos, mainly the skippers. Just this
morning, a nice photo of a SOUTHERN SKIPPERLING was posted, and I accepted,
from southern Durham County. There are numerous records for neighboring
Wake County, where a few temporary breeding colonies appear and blink out.
I've had temporary colonies at the NC Museum of Art grounds, along
Mid-Pines Road, and one of two other places, but they usually don't make it
past the winter. But, NC has no documented records of Southern Skipperling
from north of a line from Wake, Chatham, and Randolph counties, in the
Piedmont -- nor in the northwestern Coastal Plain.

The photographer is Julie Pearce. Congrats!
