Butterflies of Arkansas

Butterflies of Arkansas:  The Nature State has a variety of regions to explore for butterflies, including the Ozark and Ouachita Mountains, the Arkansas River Valley, as well as part of the Gulf Coastal Plain and Mississippi River Lowlands.  Nearly 170 kinds of butterflies have been reported from Arkansas.  The resident butterflies are primarily southern species, but some western and northern species are also represented.

Beautifully illustrated are 62 species of true butterflies and 22 species of skippers, and their caterpillars.  Ideal for the field, this folding, waterproof guide features color photos of the butterflies and caterpillars in a side-by-side format.  Common and scientific names, adult size, season when they can be found, and their caterpillar host plants are listed.  Tips on finding butterflies and caterpillars are given and the life cycle of the Gulf Fritillary is illustrated.

Featured are familiar butterflies such as the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, Orange Sulphur, Red Admiral, Mourning Cloak, Monarch, Silver-spotted Skipper and less well-known species such as the Falcate Orangetip, Olympia Marble, Harvester, and Baltimore Checkerspot.  Arkansas’ State butterfly, the Diana Fritillary, is also shown.

Teachers, students, and nature enthusiasts of all ages will enjoy using this guide.
