I first learned of the presence of butterworts in the Castle Crags Wilderness area in the summer of 1995. An unexpected telephone call revealed the presence of butterworts in a rather obscure and heretofore unreported location over 100 km east or southeast of all previously reported sites in Siskiyou County, California or Josephine County, Oregon. Was this some kind of a hoax that some of my carnivorous plant buddies had manufactured?
