Urquhart Data

The following four maps (click on the thumbnail images to view maps) show the significant recaptures (304) in the United States that were reported in Urquhart's "Insect Migration Studies" newsletter from 1964-1994. Most interesting among these recaptures are the instances of Monarchs in Florida crossing the Gulf of Mexico to Texas and Louisiana and one Monarch recovery in Havana, Cuba!

 1964 - 1971  1971 - 1981  1982 - 1988  1989 - 1994

This final map shows the origins of Monarchs (62) which were recaptured in Mexico in Urquhart's tagging program. The recapture records for this map include those reported in The Monarch Butterfly [VIEW MAP] and in the "Insect Migration Studies" newsletter from 1964-1994.
