ID: 0000 0000 1004 0127 (2004-10-08)

  • date of photo  Oct 6, 2004
  • location   Small section of restored native tallgrass prairie near the Yellow River on county road X36 (Allamakee County, Iowa, US)
  • order Lepidoptera
  • class Insecta
  • notes   A relatively uncommon find in this area, Milbert's Tortoiseshell tends to range further north. This year was particularly mild and wet creating some wet areas where normal years do not have them. It is likely due to those conditions that this specimen was found south of its normal range.
