The butterfly fauna of extreme south Florida and the Keys may constitute the most endangered suite of species in the continental United States. At least 15 full species of butterflies can be found only in south Florida and the Keys, within the United States. Many of these, such as the iridescent turquoise-spotted, black and crimson Atala; the white-spotted, orange-blotched, smoky-gray Bartram's Scrub-Hairstreak; and the orange-topped, blackened violet/gray-bottomed Florida Leafwing, are spectacular. For another 6 species, the subspecies resident in south Florida is unique within the United States (although other subspecies occur in southern Texas, mainly as strays).

Most of these special butterflies are found in association with either tropical hardwood hammocks or with pine rockland. All have suffered from the catastrophic loss of habitat caused by converting most of south Florida's natural habitat into urban and suburban developments. Unfortunately, this process continues. In addition, Florida's war upon mosquitoes, by massively and repetitively assaulting the environment with toxic chemicals, has added the beauty and brilliance of butterflies to its collection of collateral damage.

Miami Blue
One of the butterflies that has all but disappeared is the Miami Blue. Common throughout southern Florida through the 1970s, populations of this small gem of a butterfly declined precipitously throughout the 1980s. By the end of the 1980s it could be found only at a few locations in the Florida Keys. By 1992, the only known colony was on Key Biscayne. After the destruction of the colony on Key Biscayne by Hurricane Andrew, there were no confirmed reports of Miami Blues for 7 years, even though many butterfly enthusiasts were actively searching for the butterfly during this time.
