Sighting for July 18, 2021

Pat & Clay Sutton

Sutton GDN in Goshen
Cape May County, NJ

Turns out Clay's probable Brazilian Skipper on July 9th, was indeed a Brazilian Skipper. We have dozens of folded over Canna leaf parts with growing cats inside (front yard garden AND back yard garden).
[Congrats to Pat and to Clay for having his probable bug confirmed as our first report of Brazilian sk this year. Whose canna plants will be next? -jm]
