Red Admirals - USGS Map - South Carolina

Nearly all the records on the SC site are mine, especially my published
skipper records. I had also published a paper on the butterflies of the
southern coastal area but evidently this was not consulted. There are also
a lot of SC records from the Lep. Soc. season summary that have never been
added. There are also a couple of big errors on SC - most notably the
record of Chlosyne harrisi. That one is absolutely false - yet is it
colored "confirmed". The USGS project is an enormous undertaking and as can
be seen some areas of the US are still virtually virgin territory when it
comes to knowing what leps are there. Looking at the SC map may help folks
understand why I am publishing so much taxonomic info from this area. Also
remember that a great many of the eastern US butterflies were described
from neighboring Burke and Screven counties GA - areas that have had
virtually no collecting there since the time of John Abbot.
