Online resource 1 is a table of disturbance susceptibility scores (rankings) of riparian butterflies found in the western USA. We considered three categories as contributing to disturbance susceptibility: adult mobility, larval host-plant specificity, and riparian dependence. Scores were summed from each category to create a ranking for each species. High scores represent species that are sensitive to athropogenic disturbance while low scores are often species that are generalists in the environment.
