There is a 10 page article on Regals in the 1999 Winter Issue of
American Butterflies (NABA periodical).

On captive breeding: the article states that Regals are proving
difficult to breed, with no one yet successful at rearing more than
one generation. There are people at Princeton, Stanford, and UConn
working on the issue.

This article and others are listed on NABA's website <>.
