Abstract

The purpose of this work was to throw light upon the appearance of Lepidoptera in the Jackson Hole Research Station area during the summer of 1969. Personally to me, the comparison between the Lepidoptera fauna of this area (high altitude) and the one of Finland (high latitude) has been very fascinating. Unfortunately the lack of literature and earlier works made it impossible to identify all the different species captured. It seems to be obvious that a part of the collected material can be keyed out by using literature and comparing the species with those we have in the Lepidoptera collection of the University of Helsinki. But at least some of them have to be sent to the specialists in the U.S.A for identification. If the identification turns out to be successful, the results will be sent to the Research Station.
