Drummond, III, B.A., G.L. Bush and T.C. Emmel. 1970. The biology and laboratory culture of Chlosyne lacinia Geyer (Nymphalidae). Journal of the Lepidopterists' Society 24(2): 135-142.

The nymphalid butterfly, Chlosyne lacinia Geyer, is the most widely distributed species of its genus, ranging from Argentina northward into Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and the Imperial Valley and adjacent desert areas of California (Comstock, 1927; Ehrlich and Ehrlich, 1961). Occasionally it may penetrate as far north as Kansas and Nebraska (Klots, 1951).

Confirmation of Rhopalocera (Pieridae, Nymphalidae) previously recorded for Texas and the United States.
By Kendall, R.O.
Journal of the Lepidopterists' Society 28(3): 249-252., 1974
Full Text

Kendall, R.O. 1974. Confirmation of Rhopalocera (Pieridae, Nymphalidae) previously recorded for Texas and the United States. Journal of the Lepidopterists' Society 28(3): 249-252.

The object of this paper is to remove the dubious status of earlier reports of two species of Lepidoptera being found in Texas. Each species is represented at present by a single example only. Examples of earlier recordings have not been found; it is possible, however, that they do exist.

These species may represent single-brooded migrants which come to Texas from time to time.

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.
