Bog Copper (Tharsalea epixanthe)

Observer

wschenck

Date

July 2021

Description

At least 13-15 individuals. Habitat was a sizable cranberry bog in New London County approximately 3.5 acres in size, protected by a band of very dense mountain laurel swamp (not fun to bushwhack through) within wider classic eastern Connecticut deciduous forest with very thick understory. This may represent a new site for Bog Copper in CT. The substrate was uniformly cranberry-sphagnum moss; white-and-pink cranberry flowers and young green berries were everywhere. Above the bog floor grew copious rushes; patches of a Rhododendron sp. (no pics, sorry, the butterflies were a little consuming) were interspersed. Other bog plants such as sundews, pitcher plants, or rose pogonias were conspicuously absent.

The coppers were concentrated in a relatively small area identical to the wider bog. We observed both males and females (more males; our photographic bias was to the lovely golden females.) There was little interaction between individuals. We were overjoyed to see so many (13-15), both to see this threatened species thriving at this isolated site and because the conditions (75 degrees, extremely humid, wet post-drizzle, overcast) weren’t classic for butterflies.

This sighting represents the first record of Bog Copper for Connecticut on iNaturalist. If you would like to contact me about these threatened butterflies, please email me at willschenck22@gmail.com.
