A Juvenile Butterfly Collector in Trinidad 1933-36

Nicholas Guppy


Two butterflies caught by the author, both of them Morphos, do not appear in Bacant's (1970) Butterflies of Trinidad and Tobago, and are therefore of some interest now. The author visited the British Museum (Natural History) in South Kensington, London, to try to get them identified, and was there advised by Mr P.R. Ackerley of the Entomology Department to send photos and measurements to the leading authority on the genus Morpho, Professor Patrick Blandin, of the Museum National D'Histoire Naturelle in Paris. Prof. Blandin's reply (pers. comm.) indicates that these two butterflies are new records for the island.
