The overview the results of a full-scale inventory and long-term monitoring observations of the occurrence and abundance of butterflies in Specially Protected Natural Areas of the Komi Republic is presented in this paper. It has been established that the republican network of protected areas includes habitats of 115 representatives of the superfamily (about 86% of the composition of the regional fauna). It is concluded that most of the protected areas of the Komi Republic of federal and republican significance a fully performing the function of preserving species diversity, the landscape-zonal structure of the fauna and the spatial-typological structure of the Lepidoptera population of the Papilionoidea superfamily in the northeast of the Russian Plain and in the northern regions of the Ural Mountains. The IUCN assessment of the risk of extinction the Lepidoptera suggests that the network of protected areas of the Komi Republic plays a crucial role in the conservation of the gene pool of species included in the regional Red Book. To meet these challenges, it is necessary to organize monitoring observations of the state of populations the rare species and the dynamics of species diversity the butterflies in support protected areas and in key habitats.
