Avian predation on the palatable butterfly cercyonis pegala satyridae

, : Avian predation on the palatable butterfly cercyonis pegala satyridae. Ecological Entomology 4(3): 205-210

Samples from 2 populations of the satyrid butterfly, C. pegala were collected and analyzed for palatability and incidence of avian predation. A series of feeding experiments indicated that C. pegala is indeed palatable. A high proportion of individuals in both samples showed evidence of avian attack: 10.2% in Amherst and 7.1% in Easthampton [Massachusetts, USA]; this frequency is much higher than usually described for studies of this sort. The 2 samples showed no significant differences with respect to frequency of damaged specimens. There was no consistent location of damage on individuals or significant differences between the 2 samples.
