Neil Bjorkland and I worked the Eight Dollar Mountain Road. Much of the butterfly activity was uphill from the Eight Dollar Bridge over the Illinois River. Our best spot was a hilltop 3 miles uphill from the bridge.
I returned to an area where I saw and photographed Leinira Checkerspot last year. What is cool is I found three this year and fellow butterfly enthusiasts Dennis Holmes and David Bartholomew each found Leinira Checkerspots in their own local areas in California, pretty much on the same day!

Swallowtails were a mix of Eastern Tigers and Canadian Tigers. Many more were seen but not identified. There were several puddle parties going on along the road. I’m sure there were probably a few hybrids mixed in there too. All butterflies were nectaring on what I believe to be Robin’s Plantain (Hairy Fleabane) Erigeron pulchellus.

I like having my garden visible from a window! We saw the Silver-spotted Skipper & ran out to get some shots before a thunder storm. Helitrope is my new favorite butterfly nectar plant. I noticed the deer don’t bother it at Barbour Landing at Harris Neck so I transplanted some from a family member. (Deer consumed 200 Echinacae (Purple Cone Flowers) in one evening! Coneflowers have always been easy to grow from seed and butterflies love them. I’m starting more and treating them with Milorganite to repeal the deer. They ate my roses and Blueberry Plants last night! Wish me Luck!

92 degrees midday. We discovered a colony of Intricate Satyrs in late March and a 2nd brood today. We believe the ‘Carolina Satyrs’ reported here are actually Intricate Satyrs. Flight was very low to the ground and they flew only a few feet, (noticeably less skiddish and consistently easier to approach in field than Carolina Satyr). Two different grasses which are described as host plants are found here in maritime forest with numerous old oaks and grassy areas inbetween along a coastal river with lots of fresh water on the penisular. Intricate Satyrs have a postmedian line that is relatively straight above M-3 but forms a corner or bump, distad around M-3. Researchers identified a “sinuous band gap (SBG) near the ventral hindwing tornus, between the posterior most eyespot and the connection between the postmedian and submarginal lines. In Intricate Satyrs the SBG was observed to be larger and more open.

San Bruno Mountain is home to 4 federally endangered butterflies, of which one was observed today along the Ridge Trail. One species, that is, 42 individual San Bruno Silverspots (Callippe Fritillaries).

San Francisco weather conditions (drizzly fog and strong cold winds off the ocean), kept some butterflies expected under better conditions to wait for a better day. Can’t complain, nice to see those fritillaries.

The weather was hot, 89º F with s slight breeze and intermittent clouds. About 90% of the milkweed encountered was in full bloom. There were fewer plants than in prior years at this location, but all of them looked very healthy and robust. There was a good variety of species, but very few individuals of any given species were seen. The trip was from 1:30 to 3:30 pm. One of the highlights was seeing two Monarch caterpillars near the entrance only a few minutes into the trip.

I found the eggs left by the mother Atala. All that I have seen have these scales left on them from the mother. It makes you wonder if there is some advantage to the well-being of the eggs/larvae/butterfly or is it just a by-product of a hairy/scaly abdomen?

NABA Butterfly Count - Warner Mountains Fandango Pass Zone

Cathy and I participated in this years NABA Butterfly Count in California’s Warner Mountains. Our zone for the day was the Fandango Pass, which crosses the Warner Mountains and connects the Great Basin habitat of the Surprise Valley to the east with the Pit River Valley to the west.
I will not include numbers on this list, but I will say that we saw the most Arrowhead Blues I have ever seen in one day! We saw 8 of them. I dare say, this might be the most seen on any one NABA count route in the country!
