The butterfly fauna of the Krakatau Islands after a century of colonization Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Collections of butterflies from the Krakatau Islands made from 1982-85 are discussed. Twenty species new to the island group and many new records to particular islands imply that the butterfly fauna is far from equilibrium. The colonization trends are discussed in relation to the habitats available, and conservation measures are suggested.
