Although Kentucky has an active Lepidoptera community, there are still several regions of the state with very sparsely documented butterfly faunas. While conducting surveys and obtaining personal collection materials for Lepidoptera throughout Kentucky, we documented new county distribution records for 16 butterfly species between Bath, Martin, and Rowan Counties in eastern Kentucky. In addition, we documented the second recorded multiple occurrence of Parrhasius m-album in Kentucky and a new earliest sighting date for Anthocharis midea in Kentucky.
