On a collection of butterflies from Hazaribagh National Park and near by areas in south Bihar (Lepidoptera: Rhopalocera) (Records of the Zoological Survey of India) by Rajendra Kumar Varshney () The butterflies of Sikkim Himalaya and their natural history: Includes many species found also in other parts of India and Himalaya: with India’s Second Butterfly Park in Shimla: The second butterfly park of India was opened in Shimla. Spanning over an area of 10 acres, a whopping 60 millions was invested in it. Now, this park hosts more than species of butterflies. 14 out of which were found in the cold deserts of Spiti and Lahaul. The park also has a museum and conservatory.   The event at Rocky Mountain National Park on August was the sixth of ten “BioBlitzes” that the National Geographic Society and the National Park Service are partnering on over ten years. During a hour period, participants focus on finding and identifying as many species as possible in specific areas of the park. This website provides a gigantic collection of European moth, butterfly and caterpillar pictures as well as info on their foodplants, breeding, and life cycles. Sorted by scientific names. Highly recommended! Butterflies in Sweeden: Fantastic picture gallery of butterflies found in Sweeden.

The Butterfly Photographers Handbook, written by William B Folsum, is a hard-back book with information-packed pages. It includes, of course, many amazing photographic examples and at the time of writing, had attracted seven 5-star ratings from members of the public on Amazon.   The 'dogface' referred to in this butterfly's name is the silhouette on the forewing of a poodle's head visible when backlit. One of our most common butterflies, the dogface is also noticeable by the black borders on the wings. Caterpillars eat members of the Pea family. Caterpillars can be killed in a preservative fluid (i.e., KAAD) or boiled (like shrimp!), and then stored in 70% (rubbing) alcohol. Pupae can be preserved in alcohol, frozen and mounted on an insect pin; or preferably the butterfly can be allowed to emerge and the pupal skin can then be pinned underneath the mounted butterfly. A truly superb book about the butterflies of eastern North America is "Butterflies of the East Coast, an Observer's Guide" by Rick Cech & Guy Tudor, Books and photographs don't come much better. This book is a source for some of the information included in this list. In a way, of course, butterflies can be almost anywhere.

The Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Butterflies. Alfred A. Knopf, New York. Scott, J. A. The Butterflies of North America. Stanford University Press, Stanford, California. Prepared by the Department of Systematic Biology, Entomology Section, National Museum of Natural History, in cooperation with Public Inquiry Services. The monarch (Danaus plexippus), Karner blue (Lycaeides melissa samuelis), Quino checkerspot (Euphydryas editha quino), Saint Francis' satyr (Neonympha mitchellii francisci) and Oregon silverspot (Speyeria zerene hippolyta) butterflies are all important species for Defenders because of their imperiled status. Each species is reliant on specific plants or plant families as hosts for their eggs.   Over the past several decades, populations of a wide variety of native butterflies in south Florida, including Everglades National Park, have been declining. Several species, such as the Zesto's skipper and rockland grass skipper, are now believed by scientists to be extinct.   The park's great diversity of species makes it an ideal butterfly study location. The park has confirmed species which is more than in some states. The park straddles the Western Continental Divide, and has elevations from around feet to o feet. Wet and dry areas, and other habitat variations are found across these elevations.
