View Butterfly Families
Quebec's Butterflies are divided into 5 families:
>>>click on images/links below to visit family galleries<<<
The pages in these galleries are organized taxonomically, according to family, subfamily, and species. Clicking on any of the links above will bring you to a page for the corresponding butterfly family. On these family pages you'll find thumbnails for each species which provide access to the corresponding species pages. On each of these species pages you'll find a selection of images, and a link to the corresponding Butterflies of Canada page which provides descriptive information.
These galleries include most of the species found in Southern Quebec, with the exception of a few regional rarities and infrequent migrants. A number of species found strictly in Northern Quebec and the Gaspesie are missing, but I hope to add them in the future. The species lists are derived from a number of sources listed on the references page.
