New Record of the Threatened Butterfly Drephalys mourei (Hesperiidae) in a Heavily Disturbed Area in Southeastern Brazil
In addition, the present record emphasizes the importance of citizen science in providing valuable data for biological conservation. As recently shown for other threatened butterfly species (Rhetus belphegor (Westwood, 1851), Kaminski et al. 2015), both scientists and amateurs can effectively contribute to the science by revealing new unknown populations of rare or threatened species of animals and plants (Theobald et al. 2015).
