This very detailed compendium of data on taxonomy and nomenclature of Australian butterflies is another in the Catalogue series produced by the Australian Biological Resources Study, a sub-program of Environment Australia. Expanding on the butterfly section of the earlier Checklist of the Lepidoptera of Australia by Nielsen, Edwards & Rangsi (1996) this Catalogue contains the fine details of naming and status of types of Australian butterflies, and information critical for fixing the scientific names of the species. It thus compliments the Checklist and the more recently published, and more general, Butterflies of Australia: Their Identification, Biology and Distribution by Michael Braby. This volume is the 'Who's Who' for the Australian butterfly fauna, the very basic information we all need, but find so difficult to access and evaluate for ourselves. It has been prepared by renowned lepidopterist, E.D. (Ted) Edwards, and is appended by an easily accessible host list (i.e. larval food - plant or animal).
