T. C. Emmel, A. Sourakov, A. Dantchenko


The results of a joint Russian-American expedition to the Far East region of Russia in July 1995 are reported, including a list of all 119 butterfly species recorded, with comments on habitats, life histories, and notes on the moth fauna. This ecologically unique area, north and south of Vladivostok, supports a mixture of subtropical and north temperate flora and fauna making this site among the richest in biodiversity in the Palearctic Region. The Lepidoptera fauna in particular deserves intensive study.
