Sighting for September 28, 2019

Matt Webster

Dambly’s Garden Center, Winslow Twp
Camden County, NJ

We have large numbers of Rudbeckia sp., Celosia sp., and Montuak Daisies. Butterflies were in really good numbers today for late Sep here. My first sighting of Ocola Skipper was awesome. Extremely long, narrow skipper and must have been fresh as it showed a very dark/purple sheen to it. Pretty exciting.

[Good find, Matt – our first report of the species in CAM since 10-18-17 and only our 5th from that county since our log began in 2008. jc]
