I'm forwarding this message to the JBS-L list on behalf of Phillip
deMaynadier from Inland Fisheries:

Is there any chance that JBS members might have local knowledge of good
Rumex wetlands in the Eastern Lowlands (approx N. of Rt 9, E. of Bangor, and
S. of Houlton)?  We're interested in identifying a butterfly of Special
Concern, the Bronze Copper.  The key to finding this butterfly is locating
good patches of its host plant.  We're looking for wet meadows and marshes
with good populations of Rumex (orbiculatus or crispus).  We're especially
interested in site locales for the Eastern Lowlands and Aroostook Hills and
Lowlands ecoregions (basically from Bangor east and north).
