Butterfly Briefs
Periodically, the Urban Butterfly Initiative highlights a Midwestern US butterfly species with its Butterfly of the Week feature on social media, giving some tidbits of information along with photos. These highlights have been consolidated here as Butterfly Briefs. If you don't see your favorite Midwestern butterfly, just be patient - it'll show up here sooner or later!

Butterflies in this section are arranged by their scientific family. Click on the family name to go to that page, or click on an individual butterfly to go directly to that Butterfly Brief.

FREE Butterfly e-Guide and visit our Butterfly ID Links page.
