2014 Pelham Catalog of Butterflies of US and Canada

Probably because I was all caught up in the middle of the flight season here, I neglected to mention to LepLog readers the availability of the 2014 edition of “A Catalogue of the Butterflies of the United States and Canada by Jonathan P. Pelham.”  I have the 2011 version on the site, and there have been a number of changes, but I didn’t find any significant changes in the mid-Atlantic fauna as I worked on the checklist of MD butterflies during some spare time over the holiday weekend.

Still, there have been a number of changes in nomenclature for western species, plus new additions to the US fauna since the 2011 update, including the new wood-satyrs Hermeuptychia intricata, the Intricate Satyr, in the southeastern US; and Hermeuptychia hermybius from Texas.

The catalogue is also available online.
