Klappentext

Excerpt from The Butterflies of Maine: Designed for the Use of the Students in the Maine State College, and the Farmers of the State; Orono, February, 1884

The following paper contains an account of all the species of butterflies occurring in Maine, so far as known to me. If there are other species within our limits, they must be rare, or very local in their distribution; and if any should hereafter be found in the State, which are not here described, I shall be very glad to know of the fact, and to see specimens of them. We are still ignorant of the insect fauna of certain parts of the State, yet it is hardly probable that many species of butterflies will be added to the list herein described. Chionobas semidea Say, and Argynnis montinus Scud. occur on the White Mountains in New Hampshire, and may yet be discovered on Mt. Katahdin when that region is fully explored by entomologists.

Quite a number of the butterflies feed on plants which are of no special value to our people, but those which are destructive to our more valuable plants should be well known in all their stages, and the best means of destroying them should be understood. I have therefore given all the facts known to me, which can be of value in holding the injurious insects in check.

It should be a part of the education of a farmer, to discover his friends and enemies among the insect tribes, and to do this, there is no better way than to raise those which trouble his crops, carrying them through all their transformations, in order to enable him to recognize them in any stage of their existence, and to discover the most vulnerable stage in their lives, or the one in which they may be most easily destroyed.
