Endangered butterfly needs special environment

from neighbors, it will never get colonized. Large and connected patches are those that do best, said Schultz. "Thats not surprising, but we had to figure out how close and how big the patches need to be."

Schultz and Crone found that restored patches no more than three-fourths of a mile apart, and at least seven to 25 acres in size, benefit Fenders Blue butterflies far more than smaller or more isolated patches.

The Fenders Blue only live ten to fifteen days and during that time must find a place to lay enough eggs. Only about one in a hundred Fenders Blue eggs survive to become adult butterflies. "If the patch isnt big enough, then it might not replace itself by laying enough eggs," said Schultz.

Schultz also explained that it is not clear if captive rearing is necessary to restore the Fenders Blue to the area, or if with the right environment they will repopulate an area on their own.

Cheryl Schultz can be reached on Sunday through Wednesday at the Radisson Tucson City Center, telephone 520-624-8711. She will give an oral presentation in the Graham Meeting Room at 2:45 on Tuesday, August 5. At UC Santa Barbara her phone number is (805) 892-2529.
