      Amy, The Archdukes are only in South East Asia. Sorry. But I’m quite curious to know what you did see. I’ve checked the species listing for the Allegheny National Forest and here are the links for all the species in the two counties:
      Forest County http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/checklists?species_type=0&tid=2507
      Warren County http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/checklists?species_type=0&tid=2542

      What you saw was probably in the Nymphalidae family. If I had to guess, I’d say it was most likely one of these three, so check these first:

      Limenitis arthemis Red-spotted Purple or White Admiral
      Limenitis arthemis arthemis White Admiral
      Limenitis arthemis astyanax ‘Astyanax’ Red-spotted Purple

      If you find it, please let drop back by and let me know. I’d love to know what you saw!

        Im aware of there central location researched the butterfly before coming to your site.. actually seen numerous pictures on facebook on a page im subscibed to.. about 10 yrs ago in the late fall me and my uncle and i saw 6_9 killer bees at our camp. It was the year they were in Texas. They were lethargic flying in a circle.

          I’m confused by your comment. To the best of my knowledge this species is only found in the Indomalaya ecozone. I searched the All Americas Database, and this species is not in the official listing for either North, Central or South America. Can you please provide a link to the research that indicates otherwise?
