Butterfly Sightings: Bob Gorman reported Great Purple Hairstreaks in South Orange County!
This butterfly is not often observed Orange County and is much more common in the desert
Orange Sulphurs
Orange Sulphurs were also reported and seen in South Orange County and up along the coast through Corona Del Mar. last year. This butterfly normally is mainly found at semitropical and tropical latitudes. It has been established in the Coachella Valley for over a decade. May have to thank global warming for its occurrence and push northward into Southern California.
Senna Sulphurs at one time were also uncommon sightings in the 1970’s - now they are common residents.
