Thanks for replying to my query about woolly bear caterpillars. I have checked all available reference sources in my local library and bookstores. In addition, I did check the NEWTON nature guides. What I need now is an expert (or two), so that I can go beyond reference book type of information - get more in depth if at all possible. That's why I asked for suggestions for an expert I could contact.

You might try here, nothing specifically about butterflys but you might be able to email staff at U.mich for help.

This one is for children but has some links and also email for questions.
