Livestock Grazing Shapes the Vegetation Structure and Subsequent Habitat Use by the Endangered Skipper Pyrgus ruralis lagunae (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae)
TLDR
Contrary to the prevailing theory, protection from grazing did not improve skipper habitat, and this illustrates how management based on inadequate biological information can hinder well-intentioned conservation efforts. Expand
Pimachrysa (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae: Nothochrysinae): Larval Description and Support for Generic Relationships
TLDR
The previously unknown larval characteristics of Pimachrysa (second and third instars) are described, and new comparative data on the Nothochrysa californica Banks larvae are provided, consistent with the hypothesis that larval nakedness was the ancestral life style for the extant chrysopid clade.

Ecology of the threatened Harbison’s dun skipper (Euphyes vestris harbisoni) for conservation efforts within a habitat conservation plan
Southern California is a biodiversity hotspot, an area with high species richness and where many species are threatened with extinction. Six lepidopteran taxa are of conservation concern, includingExpand
