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.

INTRODUCTION
Some of the records treated here have appeared in the Lepidopterists' News (Season Summary) and others in the Southern Lepidopterists' News. For historical and biological abstracting purposes they are formalized in this paper, together with appropriate credits and reference citations. It will be noted that these particular species, except for Staphylus azteca (Scudder) and Atrytone mazai Freeman (oversightsl, were not included in the 1981 Miller and Brown Catalogue/Checklist because their original appearance in the literature was not in a formal publication.

Introduction (in part)

The species listed here in are primarily a result of the collecting by the authors during the period 1972-1973. Certain important records of the previous several years are also included. Additionally, the checklist incorporates records of a number of other lepidopterists. The primary focus of the checklist, then, is upon recent collecting, rather than being an attempt to list all known records from the Mid-Valley area.

Durden, C.J. 1982. The butterfly fauna of Barton Creek Canyon on the Balcones Fault Zone, Austin, Texas, and a regional list. Journal of the Lepidopterists' Society 36(1): 1-17.

ABSTRACT. Diversity of substrate, topography and water supply, and climate and vegetation account for the occurrence of 74% of the regional fauna along a 1.1 km stretch of Barton Creek. Monthly mean weather records for 40 years are analyzed on a bioclimagram and the modes matched with habitat types. 172 species are listed for the ten counties around Austin, and range, habitat, abundance, and residency are indicated for the 127 found at the study site.

ABSTRACT. A survey of the butterfly fauna (1988-96) of the upper Frio-Sabinal region of the southern Edwards Plateau, Texas, is presented. Butterflies were observed along transects at five study sites and during repeated opportunistic transects at 12 secondary localities. A total of 28,03.5 specimens, comprising 100 species was recorded.
