See Larry Orsak's article, "Killing Butterflies to Save Butterflies"
at: which was originally
published in News of the Lepidoptera Society 3:70-80 (1993).

Also, I would be happy to snail-mail a reprint of my article (which reviews
this topic), "A comparison of price, rarity and cost of butterlfy
specimens: Implications for the insect trade and for habitat
conservation" (Slone, Orsak & Malver; Ecological Economiccs 21:77-85,
1997) to anyone who is interested.
