Here in SE Arizona P. sennae are having their usually large flight into our
area from Mexico that come with the summer "monsoons".Hoping for something
unusual accompanying them - but so far only some Boisduval's Yellow (Eurema
boisduvalianum).  We would be interested in hearing of any other influx
species seen in our area.
