This work is the result of nearly 40 years of assimilating data on the distribution and abundance of this diverse group of insects in the Commonwealth. Authored by University of Louisville professor Dr. Charles van Orden Covell Jr., it includes collection data for 2,388 butterfly and moth species documented from the state, with special reference given to species found in 68 parks, reserves or other important habitats. Brief comments on the ecology of several species have also been included. Of particular interest is the section on the history of butterfly and moth investigations in Kentucky beginning with a visit to Kentucky by noted British lepidopterist Edward Doubleday in 1837. 220pp.
