Amateur and professional Australian butterfly specialists were asked in a postal questionnaire for their opinions on the consequences of listing the species that were protected in each state. Fifty-seven replies were received from 169 questionnaires sent. The results indicate that problems commonly arise after species are listed in some states because permission for further research on them is more difficult to obtain. Recommendations are made as to how this difficulty could be dealt with.
