Location: Nixon Creek Peatlands (part of Nixon Lake SNA)
Brief survey of section on west side of Nixon Lake Road, south of Nixon Creek. Great potential for other peatland species- Bog Fritillary, for example, should be common here.
This is the first time I have found Frigga Fritillary using a riparian peatland complex. Bog willow (Salix pedicellaris)- the only demonstrated larval food plant in our region- is common here and if timing/effort was better one could probably observe large numbers of Frigga.
