These two tutorials provide information on a number of butterflies commonly seen in Florida and the southeastern United States. The Florida Butterfly tutorials are based on two color sheets developed by the UF/IFAS Department of Entomology and Nematology. These color sheets, as well as many others on general household, lawn and ornamental, and vegetable arthropods are available from the UF IFAS/Extension Bookstore (352-392-1764 or 800-226-1764). The UF/IFAS Featured Creatures WWW site (click on species links) also offers information and color photographs on a number of butterfly species.
The tutorials require the Windows operating system.
