=======================================

select quotes from Miller's Review (full PDF):

Novice and master gardeners in the southern U.S., particularly in the Rio Grande Valley, Texas, have an extraordinary treat in store with this volume.

There are special sections of the book devoted to creating a personal butterfly garden and to methods of attracting butterflies, highlighted by personal observations on such topics as the important characteristics of floral nectaries (color, shape and fragrance) and how to choose the appropriate plants, with one of my favorites-adopt a weed.

Full PDF

Paul A. Opler & Andrew D. Warren. 2003. Scientific names list for butterfly species of North America, north of Mexico. Gillette Publications, Fort Collins, CO. 83 pp.

This is the first list of scientific names of North American butterfly species prepared and reviewed by systematists since that of C.D. Ferris (1989).

This list contains the most current scientific names for 780 North American butterfly species (Papilionoidea and Hesperiodea). Authorship and date of publication (many corrected) are included. The original spelling of species names are given in accord with recent practices. Annotations with literature citations are given for many of the names as explanation for their current usage. Species are numbered for curatorial purposes (subspecies are not listed). Significant input was provided by many lepidopterists, but especially significant input was provided by Gerardo Lamas (author of Neotropical Butterfly Checklist [in press]) and Jonathan Pelham (author of upcoming synonymical catalogue of North American butterflies [in preparation], which will include subspecies).
