Some corrections to Charles list of records:

I found the Greta morgane oto not the Dauphins. I found it yesterday and 
called everyone to come and see it and get photos before it got dark. The 
Daupins did post the photos first. Here's the best photo I took see 
click through it for another photo.

Also the Itaballia demophile calydonia was found by Jeffery Glassberg and 
he knew what it was on the spot. Many of us were on the site when it was 
found. I waited with 6-8 others including the Dauphins to get photos see 

I've been in the Lower Rio Grande Valley for a week now and have seen over 
100 species most I have taken photos of. This lep blew me away today with 
the grace and huge size see the last 3 photos in this album 
http://public.fotki.com/rlephoto/butterflies/texas_butterflies/ I've still 
another week to spend down here in Texas.....
