Abstract


Anaea troglodyta floridalis and Stymon acts bartrami have been found in reduced numbers in recent years due to environmental causes and factors introduced by humans. Protection of the butterflies and proper management of their habitat will be essential for their preservation in the Florida Keys and on the South Florida mainland.
