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.

select quotes from Miller's Review
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.
Scientific names list for butterfly species of North America, north of Mexico.By Opler, P.A. & A.D. Warren.

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).
