Abstract

The Teton Mountain Range of Wyoming is considerably more extensive than one would imagine when viewing it from a distance, and embraces many significantly different alpine areas. A critical comparative evaluation was necessary to indicate the most likely regions for future extensive studies of alpine insects. The snowpack in early July inhibited insect activity above timberline, hence plans for entomological high camps were postponed until the end of the month and the first two weeks of August. Numerous exploratory trips were made into the high canyons and across the passes, resulting in considerable familiarity with the alpine terrain and with general conditions within this impressive mountain range. On every trip specimens were collected, and it has been possible as a result of these activities to arrive at many conclusions which should make future investigations of the alpine fauna of the Tetons more productive than they might be otherwise. Project Number 105.
