Butterflies of America - The Butterflies of America site is a centralized resource for the study and enjoyment of American butterflies. The authors and advisors represent a broad range of professional and amateur Lepidopterists, general naturalists, authors, photographers, gardeners, artists, musicians and doctors, who are all fascinated with butterflies. The aim is to develop a comprehensive online resource devoted to American butterflies that will include information on the geographic distribution, geographic variation, taxonomy, systematics, identification, ecology (including larval foodplants and immature biology) and bibliography for all butterfly taxa in the region, including all species, subspecies and undescribed geographic segregates. At this time the Interactive Listing of American Butterflies includes only those taxa occurring from Alaska and arctic Canada through Panama, Hawaii, and on the Caribbean Islands (excluding Trinidad, Tobago, and islands off the Venezuelan coast.)
Mariposas Mexicanas - This is a comprehensive website dedicated to the study of Mexican butterflies. There is a vast collection of photos of the entire life cycle of Mexican butterflies, food plants, pinned specimens, downloadable scientific papers and lists.
Neotropical Butterflies - This is an amazing resource for images of butterflies south of the US border all the way through South America. You can purchase the second printing of the book Butterflies of Northeastern Mexico: Nuevo Leon, San Luis Potosi, Tamaulipas - A Photographic Checklist (Second Edition) by Kim Garwood and Richard Lehman in October/November 2005 via their website. Kim and Richard used several of our photographs in the Second Edition.

Randy Emmitt Nature Photography - We met Randy in Mission, Texas in the late fall of 2004. He's quite talented and has a wonderful portfolio of images.

Many observers were there that day and many photographs were taken of this very important US record. The record is also confirmed at the NABA South Texas Chapter website.
