Newfoundland Butterfly Checklist


As a novice interested in butterflies, I was unable to find a web site that listed the butterflies of  NL AND provided photos for quick reference. It is out of that need I decided to develop this page. For a quick look an image of each species, follow this link:

Return to this page to follow a specific species.

With my limited knowledge of all insects, I am unable to provide info about each of these species, but that information is clearly available all over the Net. For me, the first step to learning was to be able to identify the species I see.

This list is based on MUN page: and my own observations.
