Based on this, we performed a historical sketch of collecting and collectors, highlighting the work in the state since the sixteenth century.

We found that Cuernavaca is the town with more diversity, as it contains more than half of the species in the state, 21 sites have been successfully collected, they represented in 95% of the Papilionoidea. Municipalities best studied were Tepoztlan, Tlaquiltenango and Huitzilac. Morelos is highlighted by the percentage of taxa endemic to Mexico it represents one third of the total species endemic for the country.
