We wrote this field guide and natural history to share information on the ecology and identification of the species of butterflies that our data suggest regularly breed or occur on Department of Defense lands and ecologically similar areas on the western edge of the Great Basin. Although existing field guides provide some of the same details, we focus on the regional context. For example, we describe how to differentiate among species with similar appearance that co-occur in the western Great Basin. If the biology of a given species varies considerably among ecosystems, we present the most relevant information for our region.
