Oklahoma Butterfly Species By County

Oklahoma Moth Species By County

John Nelson, Professor Emeritus of Biology at ORU, has graciously allowed us to post his list of documented butterfly and moth species records by county for Oklahoma. John submits new & out of range/date records to the Lepidopterists Society, for inclusion in their Season Summary report & database. This year (2005) we will be updating the list as new records are added instead of at the end of the year as in the past. These new records will also eventually be added to the USGS database.

Since many species only fly for a few weeks each year, a species may not be listed in a particular county simply because no one was at the right place & time to see it.  For example, the ‘Olive’ Juniper Hairstreak, Callophrys gryneus gryneus, was first documented in Osage County in June, 2002 and Tulsa, Pawnee, Creek, & Washington Counties in April, 2004.  Does this mean the ‘Olive’ Juniper Hairstreak is a recent immigrant into these counties?  Maybe, maybe not.  It does mean no one has seen, documented, and reported the “Olive’ Juniper Hairstreak from these Counties before.


If you find a new county record, please report your find with a photo or specimen and the usual who, what, when, & where information to John Nelson at or to:
