As part of a biodiversity inventory and monitoring project, I sampled butterfly species diversity during three summers in Glacier National Park, Montana. The species lists assembled are compared with two historic species lists in order to identify trends in species richness. The addition of nine new species to the earlier inventories resulted in a total of 97 butterfly taxa in the park. However, of the species reported previously, one has not been sighted since 1935 and another since 1950. Notes regarding species habitat preferences are included.
Key words: Biodiversity, Species diversity, Butterflies, Lepidoptera, Glacier National Park.
