Non-TEA Publications About Ontario Butterflies
"Butterflies of Toronto" is part of the City of Toronto Biodiversity Booklet Series. A number of TEA members were part of the writing team. This 68-page full-colour booklet was released in 2011,and was revised and reprinted in 2015. Stocks may l be available for free distribution in some City of Toronto libraries -- North York Central would be the one possibility. The booklet contains 6 pages on good locations to observe butterflies in Toronto. Other publications in the series are Bees of Toronto and Spiders of Toronto.
The ROM Field Guide to Ontario Butterflies is another key source.
See also a 2001 study on the Bog Elfin produced for the Ontario government (MNRF), which is posted here by MNRF's permission. As noted in an article in our 2016 Ontario Lepidoptera pubication, the distribution of this species is currently under study.
