Butterfly Group #2: Woodland, Wetland & Uncommon species

The butterflies on this page are typically found near wooded areas or wetlands.  Some of them, such as the Question Mark, Eastern Comma, and Hackberry Emperor, are very common in our area. Others, including the Harvester, Northern Metalmark, and Baltimore Checkerspot, live in highly localized populations and are rare to uncommon. Ohio has lost most of its high-quality wetlands over the years, with the result that wetland species have suffered significant population declines.
