[TN-Butterflies] FW: NABA BUTTERFLYCOUNTS.ORG Submitted Count Report

Results of yesterday's Putnam County West butterfly count are copied below. One 
new species was added to those found during eight previous counts in this 
circle.  The species total tied the highest total for this count; the total of 
individuals was highest ever.  The second brood of Lace-winged 
Roadside-Skippers apparently eclosed recently, as they were counted in higher 
numbers than during any of the previous eight counts.  The entry for Common 
Checkered Skipper should probably be Common/White Checkered Skipper.
