Ron Lane asked if the new Glassberg EASTERN BUTTERFLIES THROUGH BINOCULARS book is entirely new or an expansion of the NORTHEASTERN book. I have seen briefly a copy and I would say it is quite new. It follows the format of the original book with a text and also with field notes opposite photos, but the coverage is the eastern US excluding southern Florida (which I understand will be a separate book).
I personally like the regional guide so you don't have to wonder about out of range skippers that look like local skippers. I can't say off hand how many new species are in this book that aren't in the first volume, but it covers a much broader area, both to the south and the west.
I didn't actually check how far west it goes. Hope this helps. MIKE GOCHFELD
