British Columbia Butterfly Atlas -  lots of excellent information

Butterflies of Nova Scotia - a similarly organized website covering many of the same species as this  one.
 
Wisconsin Butterflies - a nicely constructed website covering many of the species we also have here in Ontario, but not all species featured on this website will be found here.
 
Massachusetts Butterfly Club - a website featuring a useful tool for comparing photos of different species side-by-side.  Not all species featured  on this website  will be found in Ontario.
 
Butterflies of the Carolinas and Virginias - another site with features that are handy for Butterfly identification - in this case, when you place your cursor over the photograph, identification keys pop up. Not all species featured  on this website  will be found in our area.
 
Digital Atlas of Idaho ( Butterflies section )  - another site with some interesting tidbits of info, though there's less overlap between the western species and those here in the east.
