On 13 August, the first Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui) in DK this fall was 
caught by Ole Lilleor in the Aarhus area, E Jutland. On 14 August he caught 
another one at the same spot. These Painted Ladies are the first to be 
observed since a very limited influx mid May.
	In DK still low numbers of Red Admirals (Vanessa atalanta) but again,
for the third consecutive year, Camberwell Beauties have emerged in very good
numbers, with 20 as the highest count. The faboulous butterfly has been observed
all over the country.
