Dear All

Greetings from a Forum newcomer. I am writing a wildlife and travel guide to the Pantanal (Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay). I am trying to track down a list - whether of common butterflies or all butterflies - recorded in the Pantanal. I've seen plenty of second-hand claims of 1,030-1,200 species, but none referenced.

Failing that, I'm after a contact who might be able to help me with such a query. If anyone can help, please let me know!

best wishes

James

Hi James,

Unfortunately I'm not aware of any list for butterflies of the Pantanal, I would love to have one! There are very few butterfly lists for anywhere in South America.
If you want to send me some photos I'll be glad to look at them and help w/id's if I can. My direct email is kimgrwd@sbcglobal.net
good luck,
kim

hi Kim

Many thanks for this. I think I'm broadly sorted now, in terms of genera/highlights at least. Though it remains a mystery where the 1000-1100 figures come from. I will continue to sleuth and report back should I find out more.
