Abstract.

Analyses of whole genomic shotgun datasets, COI barcodes, morphology, and historical literature suggest that the following 13 butterfly species from the family Hesperiidae (Lepidoptera: Papilionoidea) in Texas, USA are distinct from their closest named relatives and therefore are described as new (type localities are given in parenthesis):

McGuire, W.W. & M.A. Rickard. 1976. New Hesperiidae records for Texas and the United States. Journal of the Lepidopterists' Society 30(1): 5-11.

The Rio Grande Valley of Texas, located in the extreme southern section of the state and encompassing areas of essentially neotropical habitat, offers a unique opportunity for the study of Lepidoptera in the U.S.A. The authors have had the good fortune to collect this area rather frequently during the past several years and during that time some interesting and important new records of Hesperiidae have been obtained.

Additional taxonomic refinements suggested by genomic analysis of butterflies.

Abstract:

Comparative analyses of genomic data reveal further insights into the phylogeny and taxonomic classification of butterflies presented here. As a result, 2 new subgenera and 2 new species of Hesperiidae are described: Borna Grishin, subgen.

Butterflies of Pennsylvania, a field guide
By James L. Monroe, David M. Wright
University of Pittsburgh Press
From the publishers page:
https://upittpress.org/books/9780822964551/

This work has all of the features that make field guides to a region's butterfly fauna useful to anyone with a serious interest in that fauna. . . . the book is a bargain and a must for anyone with an interest not just in Pennsylvania's fauna, but the northeast fauna as a whole.
