This beautifully illustrated mini field guide is packed with information on the butterflies and moths of Britain and the near Continent. It covers more than 150 species, all of which are illustrated with superb full-colour artworks that show - where relevant - variations in colour, for example for male and female butterflies, as well as some of the most spectacular caterpillars. A concise written account covering size, description, habitat, flight times, distribution, foodplants and habits appears on the same page. The easy-to-follow layouts and superb artworks aid quick and accurate identification, and make this book an indispensable reference in the field as well as at home. It is compact enough to fit in the pocket, yet packed with essential information for the nature enthusiast. To protect it against the elements in the field, the book is wrapped in a durable plastic wallet. Also included is a foldout insert with at-a-glance illustrations showing butterflies and moths by colour and pattern.
