eButterfly is Ready for Vermont!

From 2002 to 2007 volunteer butterfly enthusiasts spent thousands of hours in the field in an effort to record the status and distribution of Vermont butterflies, the first systematic statewide butterfly atlas to be undertaken. Observers have since made new discoveries, like the first state record for White-M Hairstreak or the incredible invasion of Giant Swallowtails. Where can we share and store all of our collective butterfly discoveries? Introducing our newest tool for the Vermont Atlas of Life, eButterfly, a project in which VCE is proud to be a partner. Whether it is Vermont eBird, eButterfly or iNaturalist, you are contributing your observations to help us understand biodiversity in the Green Mountain State!

Will observations we post here get there?

No. There is no connection. The user would have to assemble data from the two sites. eButterfly is like eBird, it is designed for complete checklists of all species observed at a location, like a census, but does fine with single observation too of course. Additionally, we are working hard on adding a lot of historic data from collections and prior atlas projects such as the Vermont Butterfly Survey.
