Many thanks for sending us the record of the monarch butterfly #40056, collected at Cerro Pelon on March 9, 2001 by David Marriott.
The butterfly was tagged by our associate on Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, Canada on August 19, 2000. She recorded that it was a male monarch.
This is the longest record by far of all the flights of migrating monarchs that we have ever recorded. We have always wondered where the monarchs from the eastern coast of Canada migrated and this is our first record.
So two unique records have resulted from one recapture which is also a first in our experience.
We both send our best wishes.
