From the introduction:
"On account of shrinking forests and dwindling wildlife, National Parks and Sanctuaries have of late been paid greater attention throughout the world. However, study of the smaller fauna in these forests has been neglected. Butterflies are one such group which is included in the list of threatened animals, but on which no detailed study has so far been made from any National Park or Sanctuary in India. The present paper is a list of butterflies of the Hazaribagh National Park, collected in 3 trips during wet and dry seasons. It is not an exhaustive list, because the collection period was small in all trips, nevertheless it is hoped that this list will pave way for further such studies.
Literature revealed that no list of butterflies has been published for any area of South Bihar as yet, except one by Morrison-Godfrey (1948) of which most of the material was collected from Topchanchi (Rajdaha Reservoir). Since Topchanchi is situated very near to Hazaribagh, frequent reference is made to Morrison-Godfrey‘s list in the present paper, A prelimiary list of the butterflies collected during the dry season only from Hazaribagh National Park was published earlier by Varshney & Nandi, 1976). In the present report a consolidated detailed account of all species collected from the Park and nearby areas, during three trips in 1970, 1973 and 1975 in both dry and wet seasons is provided."
