My guess is - someone sent it in for DNA barcode analysis and it fell  
out of the envelope!

> There is no prior record of Lyside Sulphur for Ontario nor Canada.
> I won't list the possible scenarios why this Lyside Sulphur found itself
> dead on a university campus during a very cold spring.
> Step one is to ask if there has been any unusual occurrences of the

> mid-February and saw the expected low numbers at a couple of locations.)
