Endangered butterfly needs proper habitat, special nectar

fly's dispersal behavior. The group is also studying how natural processes like floods and fires will affect restoration projects.

The blue butterfly was first described in 1931 by biologist Ralph Macy who discovered it on his farm in McMinnville, Oregon. He named it for his friend, Kenneth Fender, a McMinnville entomologist and mail carrier, who died in 1987, just two years before the species was rediscovered.

The remaining populations of Fender's blue can be found at only 13 sites with up to a few hundred butterflies each.
