Aerial Photograph of Southwestern Hidalgo County

The majority of new U.S. butterfly records occur in this portion of Hidalgo Co., Texas

"In the section around Pharr it is doubtful whether a person would ever get all of the species that occur around that locality, 
as each year new things make their appearance and ones that were there the year before fail to appear." (Freeman, 1959)
