    Habitat
    In Indiana, the Karner blue butterfly was originally distributed across the northern tier of counties on outwash and lake deposited sands. Extant populations in Indiana are limited to dune and lakeplain communities associated with Lake Michigan. Although these populations were originally continuously distributed along the Lakeshore, they now occur as two distinct clusters, separated by downtown Gary, Indiana, and its associated industrial and residential development The eastern population cluster of Kbb occur mostly within the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, in the oak barrens communities found on the "high dunes" that characterize this portion of the Lakeshore.
