Thanks to all that replied to my request for info on O-b Sulphurs. I learned
that they occur naturally and have also been released by several people in
both Baton Rouge and New Orleans over the past few years. They use several
varieties of senna and cassia found in urban gardens and a sustaining
population seems to be in place. I severe winter would test this population.

 Another question and I promise the last for a while. This has been a good
year for White Peacocks in New Orleans as well. Perhaps I am again unaware
of there status relying mainly on field guides. I am wondering if this is
another species that local butterfly enthusiasts have raised and released in
New Orleans? 

When visiting my son in Orlando this summer, they were everywhere we went. I
was thinking this may have been a really good year for them in their
published ranges as well.
