2013 Sachem Influx in Massachusetts

1024px-Sachem_Skipper_femaleSharon Stichter posted today to the Massleps listserv an interesting observation about the 2013 explosion of Sachem in Massachusetts and other parts of the Northeast.  She’s updated the Sachem page at Butterflies of Massachusetts, per her note below:
“In 2012 and 2013 Sachem had a dramatic influx into Massachusetts. It was “all over” Cape Cod and the south coast. Check out the updated species account at http://www.butterfliesofmassachusetts.net/sachem.htm to see two new Maps which show the quick range expansion, plus the new earliest and latest sightings through 2013.  I welcome comments, corrections, etc. Please send to sharonstichter2@comcast.net.

And now the big question: will we even get any Sachems this year after this
cold winter??!”
