Contributions to the Understanding of
TALLGRASS PRAIRIE-DEPENDENT BUTTERFLIES AND MOTHS (LEP.)
and Their Biogeography in the United States
by Eric H. Metzler, et al.
2005, 143 pages, 7 color plates, 6 figures. First faunistic study for Lepidoptera that require eastern tallgrass prairies for survival in North America. Plates illustrate prairie-dependent and potentially prairie-dependent species. Each species account is accompanied by a distribution map and details gleaned from more than 50 collaborating lepidopterists. Proposes new hypothesis to account for biogeography of more than 50 prairie-dependent species of the upper midwestern region of North America. Illustrates many species of moths in color for the first time. Soft cover; 8-1/2 x 11.
