Warm day, ~60 degrees. First Common Checkered-Skipper I’ve seen this year! It was in good shape and very active. Sulphurs and Pearl Crescents were rather worn. It’s important to note that I saw 4-5 butterflies that I assume to be emperors, maybe Tawny Emperors, flying about the fields, but did not count them here as I never got a close look to verify I.D.

Green-Gate Grove, Mission
Hidalgo County, TX

The first Zebra Cross-streak, a female, (2nd U.S. record) was found by Linda Francis at her home in Green-Gate Grove in Mission, TX, Hidalgo Co. It stayed for over 3 hours on Croton. The second was subsequently discovered at the National Butterfly Center an hour later. It was a male. Dozens of butterfliers who had stayed on after the Texas Butterfly Festival were able to see and photograph both. Also at another home in Green-Gate Grove this strikingly beautiful Gaudy Sphinx moth was found.

varied locations in Cameron, Hidalgo and Starr Counties beginning with Resaca de la Palmas SP and upriver as far as Chapeno
Hidalgo County, TX

This list covers the week on Nov.17 thru Nov.23. We covered as many areas as possible due to the arrival of a blast of arctic air on the 22nd. Prior to that the weather was warm with several days in the upper 90s and high humidity. That all changed the afternoon of the 22nd with a drop of 40 degrees in a short period of time. Strophius Hairstreak was seen at NBC gardens. Zebra Cross-streak, 4th US record, was seen at Salineno for the 3rd consecutive day but not found afterwards. The week’s list totaled 100 species.
