Butterfly Collection

Guide to the collection

The Butterfly Collection was given to the Southport Memorial Library by Stanley F. Marr, 98 Silver St., Waterville, ME.  Mr Marr was a long-time summer resident of Southport.  This web page provides information about the butterflies, moths, and insects of Mr. Marr's collection.  Many butterflies and moths have alternative names, and not all can be directly found on the internet. If the precise name was not found, the web references of related species are given.

The butterflies, moths, and other insects are displayed in numbered boxes.  Just click on any underlined butterfly name in the list to learn more about it.
