Florida Butterfly Caterpillars And Their Host Plants
By Marc C. Minno, JERRY F. BUTLER, DONALD W. HALL
University Press Florida, 2005
A useful and innovative work that combines a field guide to the caterpillars with a field guide to their host plants. Host plant pictures are in general hard to come by, especially in a single volume, since they don't fall under a general group such as Wildflowers or Trees, and many are not particularly showy. About 100 pages of this 300+ page volume are devoted to the plants, 150 pages to the caterpillars, the remainder covers natural history information about this oft-neglected (not to say despised) stage of the lepidopteran life cycle. Only a few adult butterfly pictures appear, in the general introduction, but as we know those have been widely published elsewhere.

Butterflies of Florida Field Guide (Our Nature Field Guides)
By Jaret C. Daniels
Adventure Publications, 2003
One of a growing series of state-by-state butterfly guides by Dr. Daniels, who is currently based at the McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity in Gainesville, FL (UF). Pocket-sized for easy field use, this handy guide includes larval images for most of the 102 pictured species. The guide is organized by color, which is useful for the novice but may be a little frustrating for the more experienced, as closely related species appear widely spaced in the guide.
