Sighting for September 10, 2023

Lucy Hooper

My yard in Mickleton.
Gloucester County, NJ

All butterfly sightings were late morning after the rain. This is the first Least Skipper I have found in my yard. The caterpillars were found with a UV light and photographed after dark. The Spicebush Swallowtail cat was on a Sassafras sapling and the Snowberry Clearwing moth cat on Lonicera sempervirens – native honeysuckle.

[Good work, LH! jc]
