Introduction:

A study of rare butterflies was conducted at Prairie Coteau Scientific and Natural Area, Pipestone County, Minnesota. The work for the summer of 1988 consisted of (1) general surveys for all butterfly species present at Prairie Coteau during each of the major flight periods, (2) distribution mapping for selected rare butterflies, and (3) population monitoring for Hesperia dacotae and other rare butterflies which were flying during its fight period.
