Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to all of you that helped or attended our 2016 BioBlitz!!! Our BioBlitz was a success with approximately 250 guests and more than 70 volunteers. Our species count for 2016 is 309! Thank you to the NC Science Festival for sponsoring our event.
The decrease in species found is likely due to the effort. We had less experts searching the property this year than last year. It just means that we’ll need your help even more in 2017 to document more species! Even though we found fewer species, we were still able to record new species during the BioBlitz!
New records for NC:
Honeycomb Moth – Argyresthia alternatella
Second record for NC:
Bunchberry Leaffolder Moth (Olethreutes connectum)
Crescent marked Bondia (Bondia crescentella)
Maple Tip Borer Moth (Episimus tyrius)
