MBC October Butterfly Derby - Week 3

The Massachusetts Butterfly Club is hosting an "October Derby".   One of the members is keeping track of all the reported sightings, by species, and will provide a count at the end of the month.  Since he is only tracking data at the club level, I thought I'd keep my own records here.
