      Maxent model output for desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii) in the Mojave and parts of the Sonoran Deserts of California, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona, USA. Get Started Data Basin is a science-based mapping and analysis platform that supports learning, research, and sustainable environmental stewardship. Spatial Distribution of Desert Abstract.-The spatial distribution of desert tortoises in relation to plant communities was Tortoises (Gopherus agassi'ii) compared against randomness. Tortoise captures (n at Twentvnine Palms. = ) and tortoise burrows (n = ) exhibited non- random distributions across a square kilometer. The Lepidoptera Antheraea type species (the species on which the description of a genus is based on, and with which the genus name remains associated during any taxonomic revision) is the beautiful and vibrantly-colored tasar silkworm (Antheraea mylitta, formerly Phalaena mylitta), named and characterized in by English entomologist Dru. Katie Maikis, wildlife refuge specialist with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, talks about plants and insects living in the sand dunes of the Coachella Valley National Wildlife Refuge in Thousand.

Endemic taxa include plants, a bird, and evidently at least three species of moths, whose persistence in spite of human disturbance, feral browsers, and fires, should interest conservation biologists.

Tremendous earth upheavals that elevated the area above the ocean some million years ago and the constant action of erosional forces over the eons have all had a part in sculpturing this vast region.

Lepidoptera Butterflies and Moths. Butterflies and moths make up the Lepidoptera. The name means "scale wing," and lepidopteran wings are covered with microscopic scales, which are iridescent and brightly colored in the case of this California butterfly, Lycaena scales are visible as the "fuzz" along the edges of the wing.

There are 3 pictures here. The first 2 pictures are the same butterflies. The 3rd picture is a different butterfly located in the same park.I think it is the same species but has such different coloring I wanted to make sure.

Insects are typically drawn to areas by available food supply. To my knowledge, this is the only resource of its kind and a must-have for both experienced and amateur lepidopterists.

I am defintely the latter, but this has been an invaluable help to me in understanding what the folks on butterfly and moth discussion lists are talking about when they reference species identification numbers from this work.5/5(2).
