There are many excellent websites and single pages pertaining to Lepidopteran critters--the butterflies and moths. I have listed a few here and will be adding more as I run across them. Several of these are commercial sites which also sell supplies and equipment for creating habitats for lepidopterans--so much the better! If you have a favorite Lepi-website, send me the link!
