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.

Refining the Diagnostic Characters and Distribution of Hermeuptychia intricata (Nymphalidae: Satyrinae: Satyrini)
By Andrew Warren, Denise Tan, Keith Willmott, and Nick Grishin
Tropical Lepidoptera Research, 24(1): 44-51, 2014
Full text available online.

Abstract:
The absence of androconia on the dorsal surface of the wings is established as an external diagnostic character of male Hermeuptychia intricata Grishin, 2014, that distinguishes this newly described species from males of the sympatric H. sosybius (Fabricius, 1793). Additional United States records of H. intricata are reviewed, extending its distribution to include North Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi, and central Texas. Observations on the phenology and behavior of H. intricata and H. sosybius in northern Florida are given.

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

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).
