Abstract:  I present a check list of 494 Lepidoptera species (including 477 species of Macrolepidoptera) I collected at the University of Florida’s Katharine Ordway Preserve between 3 April 1999 and 1 April 2000.  Surveys were conducted in the northwest corner of the preserve and were concentrated in turkey oak/longleaf pine scrub savanna, with a more limited amount of survey conducted in a hydric hardwood forest corridor along a small stream near the edge of a lake.  Most survey work was conducted at night, but some diurnal surveys were conducted as well.


Introduction:  The Katharine Ordway Preserve is located in Putnam County, Florida, and is managed by the University of Florida’s Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation.  While the Ordway Preserve is approximately 9,000 acres, my Lepidoptera survey work was confined to the northwest corner of the preserve, except for some minor diurnal survey work.  A variety of habitat types occur in the preserve.  The northwest corner of the preserve is dominated by uplands with early successional turkey oak-longleaf pine sandhill scrub savanna, and this habitat was the primary focus of my Lepidoptera surveys at the preserve.  A portion of the turkey oak-longleaf pine savanna area investigated (along the first north side road) had charring on the pine trunks (suggesting past fire) whereas in another area (the sandy road past Blue Pond) the pines were uncharred, but I was unable to find out information on past management history of this site beyond the fact that fire management is utilized in the preserve.  Xeric oak forest is another habitat type present in the northwest corner of the preserve.  This habitat type occurs adjacent to scrub habitat and along some of the ponds and streams.  There is a narrow corridor of hydric hardwood forest along a small stream connecting to Ross Lake.  The hydric hardwood forest corridor splices through a band of xeric oak forest adjacent to some xeric open grassy uplands.  There are also some areas of open to shrubby wetland and submergent wetland along Ross Lake.  The Ross Lake wetland areas were surveyed with a UV trap and/or limited diurnal survey on some dates, whereas the turkey oak-longleaf pine savanna was more intensively surveyed with a MV sheet, UV sheet, UV traps, rotten fruit bait, and some diurnal survey.  Some other habitat types occur in the preserve which I did not investigate for Lepidoptera, especially outside of the northwest corner of the preserve in areas where I did not conduct any surveys.

            While I have no habitat photos specifically from the Ordway Preserve, links to illustrated examples of the different habitat types surveyed in northern Florida by the North American Lepidoptera Biodiversity LLC can be found at the web page Lepidoptera Habitats of Northern Florida.  There are a variety of alternative habitat classification schemes for northern Florida, and the aforementioned web site illustrates and explains the habitat classification used by the NALB LLC.  We have avoided terminology that is largely unique to Florida, such as the term “hammock.”  The NALB LLC researches Lepidoptera habitat requirements between different geographic areas, thus we prefer terminology such as xeric oak forest (used and understood throughout the southeast coastal plain) over terminology such as xeric hammock (used almost exclusively in Florida for a habitat type which is by no means unique to Florida).

            My initial trip to the Ordway Preserve was a short night collecting trip in October 1998, when Clay Scherer first introduced me to the preserve.  At the time I conducted most of my surveys at the Ordway Preserve (3 April 1999 to 1 April 2000) I was employed as the Teaching Assistant for the University of Florida’s Department of Entomology and Nematology Insect Classification Course.  The Ordway Preserve was one of my favorite sites to take my students on field trips, and much of my survey data was obtained on field trips I conducted for my students.  While my students collected a variety of insects for their course collections, I documented as many Lepidoptera species as possible.  The preserve was less than an hour drive from the Entomology Building and provided extensive acreage of interesting habitat quite different from that which occurred around the University of Florida in southwest Gainesville.  This was coupled with the fact that at that time access to the Ordway Preserve for educational and scientific insect collecting was easy and hassle free, in contrast to some other preserves near Gainesville.  Unfortunately, this site changed management sometime in 2000 from a research friendly administration to a highly regulatory administration.  Among the many new rules proposed initially was a requirement that before conducting any work at the Ordway Preserve users had to sign in at a specific building in the interior of the preserve, which could only be accessed by roads that could be very risky to navigate with vehicles lacking four wheel drive.  I circulated a formal letter recommending that this policy be changed, and while I do not know the circumstances, this specific requirement was later dropped.  However, a proposal I submitted in 2001 to continue to conduct Lepidoptera biodiversity research at the Ordway Preserve (assisted by a team of some of my former students and some interested graduate students) was rejected.  The sole reason provided by the management was that my activities were “not related to a university-sponsored program.”  This occurred after I had already submitted two detailed reports covering my Lepidoptera research at the Ordway Preserve. 


A check list of 491 Lepidoptera species in the included families (including 475 Macrolepidoptera species) was published in:


Kons, Hugo L. Jr. and Robert J. Borth.  2006.  Contributions to a study of the diversity, distribution, habitat association, and phenology of the Lepidoptera of Northern Florida.  North American Journal of Lepidoptera Biodiversity.  Volume I: 1-231. 


This publication also includes north Florida phenology and habitat data and analyses for north Florida Lepidoptera species (in the included families) based on surveys conducted by Kons and/or Robert Borth at numerous Florida localities, including the Ordway Preserve.  The detailed data from Ordway Preserve surveys was presented in two unpublished reports provided to the Ordway management and various Lepidopterists.  These reports will be combined into one report to be published in a future volume of the North American Journal of Lepidoptera Biodiversity.  To receive an e-mail notification when new NAJLB volumes become available, please contact the editor at


Methods:  Survey methods included a MV/UV sheet with a 160 watt MV light and a electric bug zapper (with a 80 watt UV light and the zapper disabled), a UV sheet with a 22 watt DC circuline UV light and a 15 watt DC UV light, 15 watt DC UV Traps, bait trails, diurnal tapping, and diurnal survey with a net.  Follow this link for a more detailed discussion and illustrations of these survey methods.  A list of the locations and dates for survey stations is presented in Table 1.  All of the species on the check list are based on specimens I personally collected on one or more of the survey dates in the following table.


Ordway Survey Stations


Voucher Specimens:  Voucher specimens for all of the Ordway Preserve Lepidoptera species are currently housed in my research collection in Gainesville.  I have also donated some Ordway Preserve specimens to the Milwaukee Public Museum.


Results:  A check list of 494 Lepidoptera species in the included families that I collected at the Ordway Preserve appears at the end of this report.  This list is very similar to that published in Kons and Borth (2006).  Changes or additions to the Kons and Borth (2006) Ordway check list are noted to the right of the species names.


Discussion:  The Ordway Preserve data set has the best seasonal coverage of any north Florida longleaf pine-turkey oak scrub savanna locality in the Kons-Borth data set.  In recent years (2005-2007) Kons and Robert J. Borth have conducted surveys on numerous dates at Nature Conservancy’s Apalachicola Bluffs and Ravines Preserve in Liberty County, Florida.  This preserve contains early successional longleaf pine-turkey oak scrub savanna in addition to numerous other habitat types, but our surveys in this area have occurred only between late April and early June, outside of the interval when a number of univoltine scrub dependent Lepidoptera species occur (Kons and Borth 2006).  We have investigated a number of other turkey oak-longleaf pine scrub habitats at various times throughout the season with a more limited number of survey dates.

            Kons and Borth (2006) provided habitat data and analyses which were used to derive hypotheses of habitat dependency for many Macrolepidoptera species that occur in northern Florida.  Among the Macrolepidoptera species recorded from the Ordway Preserve, 78.6% are hypothesized to be habitat generalists, 2.3% are hypothesized to be dependent on hardwood forests, 2.5% are hypothesized to be wetland dependent, and 12.5% are hypothesized to be xeric oak-pine habitat dependent (including 8.7% that are potentially dependent on xeric oak-pine scrub) (Kons and Borth 2006).  There is some overlap between wetland dependent and hardwood forest dependent species, because hydric hardwood forest is a type of wetland and a type of hardwood forest.  2.3% of the Ordway Macrolepidoptera species list is comprised of species which do not appear to be dependent on a particular habitat type, but which are somewhat local in association with several types of specialized habitats (these species are defined as “habitat intermedialists” in Kons and Borth (2006)).  Some of the Macrolepidoptera species recorded at the Ordway Preserve are too poorly known to make even a preliminary hypothesis of habitat dependency, including 1.7% of the total.  The proportions of the recorded Ordway Preserve Macrolepidoptera species with various hypothesized habitat dependencies are summarized in the below figure.


KOP Figure

            For all of the Kons-Borth north Florida survey sites, including those with multiple specialized habitat types, the majority of Macrolepidoptera species recorded for any individual site are hypothesized to be widespread habitat generalists (Kons and Borth 2006).  Ordway species hypothesized to be xeric oak-pine scrub dependent and wetland dependent are listed in Tables 6 and 7, respectively, in Kons and Borth (2006).

            Among the most significant discovery from my surveys of the Ordway Preserve’s scrub habitat, discussed in Kons and Borth (2006), was the collection of a fresh specimen of Heliothis turbatus on 31 March 2000 at 4:13am at a MV sheet.  Hardwick (1996) reported that this species was known from few specimens (all from FL), none of which had phenology or good locality data.  Hardwick (1996) suggested this species might be extinct, and also speculated it might be a form of Heliothis lupatus.  Clearly the former hypothesis is not correct, and I judge the latter to be unlikely.  Heliothis lupatus appears to be a univoltine fall species in Florida, and I have never uncovered it in turkey oak scrubs, nor have I recorded it from the Ordway Preserve.  However, I have never found H. lupatus to be numerous with my survey methods either, so limited surveys could easily miss it.  My largest series of H. lupatus is from second growth mesic hardwood-pine forest at the American Entomological Institute property in Gainesville, Florida, where no more than a few specimens have been found per year from 2001-2007.  All these specimens were consistently collected in the fall.  Specimens of H. lupatus I have examined from southern Indiana and eastern Texas are very similar to those from Florida, and the species does not appear to show significant geographic variation.  Since I collected only one specimen of H. turbatus, I don’t know if it could be found at the Ordway Preserve consistently or if I obtained an isolated disperser from a different habitat type.  However, I also have a very worn specimen from 3 April 1999 that could possibly be another specimen of H. turbatus.  This specimen was taken in a UV trap in scrub habitat very near where the 31 March 2000 specimen was taken.  As the 31 March 2000 specimen was in fresh condition, it is also possible the flight season was just beginning and more individuals could have been found a little later in the season.  On the other hand, some Heliothinae are diurnal and only occasionally come to lights, so the paucity of specimens collected may simply be an artifact of largely ineffective survey methodology.  I conducted diurnal searches of various species of flowers (many species of Heliothinae may be found resting on certain species of flowers during the day) the following day but found no additional H. turbatus.

            One poorly understood aspect of the management of early successional turkey oak-longleaf pine scrub habitats is the impact of alternative active management regimes on scrub dependent Lepidoptera species.  While scrub habitats are dependent on fire to maintain them in an early successional state, variables in fire management practices include the amount of adjacent habitat left unburned after a controlled burn, the amount of time areas are left unburned, the time of year burning is conducted, and the intensity of fire during controlled burns.  Kons and Borth (2006) presented some very preliminary evidence that certain scrub dependent Lepidoptera species might be more plentiful in scrubs which have not been burned recently, and vice versa, but much more data would be needed before any reliable conclusions could be made.  Limited data for some Ordway scrub dependent Lepidoptera suggests they might be more numerous in either the scrub area which lacked charring on the trees or the scrub area with charring on the trees (these are the scrub areas in the northwest corner of the preserve noted in the introduction), but my requests for management history information for these areas were ignored by the new management regime that took over in 2000.
