Butterflies of the Paraiso Del Oso

The following list of species is divided into two parts. The first includes those species seen from the Bahuichivo area, Paraiso del Oso and Cerocahui The second part includes those species seen from Cerro Gallegos to Urique. Observations were made during parts of October (2002) and July (2003), therefore this listing should not be considered comprehensive. We invite qualified lepidopterists to help expand this list. (Note: a moth list is pending from the July trip).
