Although many butterfly species are divided into local populations among which there is little gene flow, these species often show relatively little morphological variation among populations. What studies are needed to determine what maintains this morphological similaroty?

No study is needed, it's natural selection. Even if without any gene flow, if the environmental conditions are similar than the buterflies will also look similar.
