Finding Limenitid Hibernacula

 
Here’s a short video that Utah Lep Society’s Todd Stout recently uploaded to youtube about how to find hibernating Viceroy, Admiral and/or Red Spotted Purple caterpillars in rolled leaf hibernacula during the fall, winter, and/or early spring months. Although this video specifically addresses finding Lorquin’s Admiral (Limenitis lorquini burrisoni) hibernacula in Idaho, it can be applied to other Limenitis populations as well where you have the opportunity to seek out isolated willows, aspens, choke cherries, or service berries.

This is a great video in Todd’s growing collection — check it out!
