Bibliography on Heliconius sp. Passion-flower pollinating butterflies, Mariposas de pasiflora

Heliconius butterflies have a diversity of colors and patterns, but usually they have orange, black and yellow tones. This genus of butterflies has a rapid adaptive radiation by pupal-mating behavior and pollen feeding, the last one is the reason why these species are important pollinators.
