Representative webpages:     


These webpages are a result of collaboration between BOA and TABDP. They join images from North and Central American BOA pages (interactive list) and the Neotropical type specimens photo collections. Most images of Neotropical type specimens were scanned from print photographs taken by Gerardo Lamas, representing a lifetime of dedicated and imaginative research and a great generosity in allowing them to be made available here. Digitization was carried out by the Tropical Andean Butterfly Diversity Project, funded by the Darwin Initiative.

  1. All web pages were generated by computer scripts and most have NOT been thoroughly proofread, so errors abound. Please be kind and report errors you see.
  2. Taxonomic lists are based on Lamas (2004) and are being updated to incorporate recent changes and additions. The lists may NOT be in full agreement with either the BOA interactive list, Lamas (2004), or Pelham (print: 2008, online: current).
  3. Some specimens with type labels may NOT be actual types. Not all syntypes are shown. Image captions were generated by a computer script and may not correspond to specimen labels. Research diligently! Don't take what you see here on faith.
  4. Most images not shared with the BOA interactive list were NOT subjected to manual editing, but were resized and assembled in bulk by computer scripts. Don't be concerned about the quality of images, but enjoy this unique privilege to see a comprehensive collection of type and other specimens, live adults, immatures, and habitats.
  5. Any use of these images except for personal study, requires prior written consent of the housing institution and/or photographer. We are very fortunate to have an opportunity to display them.

Lamas images of Hesperiidae are not yet digitized.
We are now seeking additional funding to develop the project further.
