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.
