I must add my two cents to the Pyrgus centaureae wyandot issue.

When I lived in Virginia in the late 70's and early 80's, Pyrgus centaureae 
wyandot was not a hard bug to find. I collected Pyrgus centaureae wyandot in 
the following counties in Virginia: 

Albemarle, Augusta, Bath, Bedford, Bland, Carroll, Craig, Flyod, Giles, 
Grayson, Highland, Montgomery, Pulaski, Rockbridge, Smyth, Tazewell, Wyth and 

In North Carolina:

Cherokee, Haywood, Jackson, Surry, Wilkes, and Yancey.

I have also collected Pyrgus centaureae wyandot in Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, 
and West Virginia. I have collected over a great deal of the eastern United 
States and have NEVER found it near civilization. Always in remote and wild 

RE: Butterflies at UV light.

I have operated light traps for over twenty years and have collected 41 
species of butterflies and skippers in light traps. I collected over 200 
Asterocampa clyton in one light trap along the Rio Grand near Fronton, Texas 
in 1996.
