520 $aThe butterfly fauna of Mona Island, situated between Puerto Rico and Hispaniola, is discussed in the context of its origin and phenology. Fifty-three species are known from the island, and the easterly bias in their origin, seen in butterflies that have diverged subspecifically on Hispaniola and Puerto Rico, is attributed to wind asymmetry.
520 $aQuestion of vagrancy and colonization in present faunal structure are discussed. Records from seven visits suggest varied phenological patterns; factors that may determine distribution and abundance or rarity are considered, and the need for long-term work on population biology is emphasized.
520 $aThe level of endemism of Mona's biota, together with its geological history and geographical position, stress its unique importance in the Caribbean area for studies on island biogeography and evolutionary divergence.
