Butterfly sighting

May 3 2015

Kyle Johnson

Location: Deer Print Lake Pine Plains
Douglas County

Part of extensive barrens complex in eastern Douglas County- this search was both side of County "A" 4.3 miles east of Hwy. 27. Still a little early for detecting Chryxus Arctic and most other species it seemed, but very promising. Good barrens moths at night though.

There is a large wildfire area east of here (and up Hwy 27) that would be VERY VALUABLE for people to monitor to see how the butterfly fauna recovers from a real, natural fire.
