These data document observed presence of butterflies in canyons throughout three mountain ranges in the central Great Basin (Lander and Nye counties, Nevada): the Shoshone Mountains, Toiyabe Range, and Toquima Range. Data were collected from 1995 through 2005, inclusive. Records for each year reflect multiple visits (generally 5 or 6) at about 10-14 day intervals from late May or early June through late August or early September. Data include species detected, date, location, abundance, and whether the species is a nonresident, resident, or montane resident.
