Isla Colon Butterflies by Family

In addition to a diverse moth population, Panama's Isla Colon hosts a spectacular variety of butterflies. Each of the specimens pictured on this site was found in one or more of the island's many habitats.

As with all of the groups included on this site, the species here are displayed on successive pages by Family, Genus, and Species. You can drill down by clicking on a Family thumbnail at right.

I continue to add records as I make collecting trips to the island. Check back regularly for updates.

 

If you'd like to suggest a determination for any of the unnamed specimens here, I'd welcome for the help. Please email me at:
