A Distributional Checklist of the Butterflies and Skippers
To most people, New York conjures up images of concrete landscapes and dense habitation—hardly an ideal realm for butterflies. But in fact there are many rich butterfly habitats within a 50-mile radius of New York, including open, more rural territories to the north and west. This checklist is based on over 5,000 records of the New York City Butterfly Club, compiled over nearly a decade. It includes distributional accounts and flight-period graphs for regular species.
