	I started to write something on Euchloe olympia, but my mom 
beat me to it!  They do indeed smell exquisite; best smelling 
butterfly I've ever smelled.  For those of you wondering, the ones 
we smelled were in Lawrence, KS.  Ones from your areas might 
smell differently if the larval foodplants are different.  So if your 
Olympia Marbles stink, go visit Lawrence in the spring and smell 
them there!
