The article provides information about lepidopterax living in the Kampirtepa and Tangidara areas of the Surkhan State Reserve. Special nets were used to collect butterflies. A collection was prepared from the collected materials. Specifiers are used to determine species composition. Among the representatives of the order Lepidoptera, many species belonging to the family Nymphalidae have been identified.
