Butterflies and Moths – Nectar Plants

butterflymothnectar

The data below has been extracted from the iNaturalist Project “Butterfly & Moth Nectar Plants”. While probably 10 times as much data as has been currently added would make a good sample size, nevertheless the information so far is interesting. Note that only research grade observations have been included. The project has 88 members, and 251 taxa have been observed in 1000+ observations, despite this year being a very bad year for California insects. Observations for all of North America are accepted. (The number after each taxa name is the number of times it has been observed for that insect species.)
