Acknowledgements and Thank Yous
This book follows the
work of Gerardo Lamas in his Checklist:
Part 4A Hesperiodidae - Papilionoida from the Atlas
of Neotropical Lepidoptera. We
are indebted to Dr. Lamas for this work and his assistance with the identification
of several species.
We thank Bob Robbins for editing
nearly 500 photos of Hairstreaks. We are very appreciative of the assistance
Wilmott with Clearwing identifications; Lee
Miller with a portion of the Satyrs;
Jason Hall with Sarotas, and Andrew
Neild for helping to sort out some of the
Memphis. David Robacker was of great help with many of the
Nymphalids and the Parides. Olaf
Mielke, Ezequiel Bustos, and Richard
Lindstrom made significant contributions
to Skipper identifications. Thanks so much to each of you!
Jackie Miller and Andrei
Sourakov at the McGuire Center, University
of Florida at Gainesville, were very helpful on visits to work with specimens
under their care. Three private collections, those of David
McInnis, and Jesus Garcia were extremely helpful and were sources
of some of the photos used. Thank all of you so much.
Without the work of the photographers, this
work would not be possible! Thanks to each of you.
