Nancy, I also use the site BOA a fair bit but have never run across the ver=
y useful looking link you provided. Too bad it=E2=80=99s not working at th=
e moment. At the risk of repeating what others may have said, I take the f=
ollowing approaches to searching BOA.

1) To find subspecies thumbnails together on one page:

=E2=80=94 Go to interactive listing page - http://butterfliesofamerica.com/=
list.htm <http://butterfliesofamerica.com/list.htm>
=E2=80=94 Open search box in browser using CTRL+F.
=E2=80=94 Search for genus/species name.
=E2=80=94 The topmost genus name in a list of subspecies is a live link; cl=
ick on it for a page full of thumbnail images of all subspecies.
=E2=80=94 Links on the left side of resulting page will take you to the mai=
n information page for that subspecies.

2) Find BOA specimens by location collected. I=E2=80=99m sometimes interes=
ted in where certain butterfly specimens were found. For example, when we =
moved to Reno recently, I wanted to make a list of butterfly finds in Washo=
e and surrounding counties in Nevada. To search in this way, I did the fol=
lowing:

=E2=80=94 Open a google search window. Enter search terms inside the point=
y brackets as shown. Do not include pointy brackets. Also ignore box brack=
ets in this generic example=E2=80=94see specific example below: <site:butte=
rfliesofamerica.com <http://butterfliesofamerica.com/> =E2=80=9C[binomial]=
=E2=80=9D =E2=80=9C[county]=E2=80=9D
=E2=80=94 Example: <site:butterfliesofamerica.com <http://butterfliesofamer=
ica.com/> =E2=80=9Cspeyeria zerene=E2=80=9D =E2=80=9Cwashoe co=E2=80=9D>
=E2=80=94 Notes: a) Use =E2=80=9Cco=E2=80=9D as BOA does not spell out the =
word =E2=80=9Ccounty"; b) the =E2=80=9Csite:=E2=80=9D operator tells google=
to only return results for the indicated web site; c) quote marks tell goo=
gle to only return exact matches.
