About this book

Butterflies of Britain and Europe looks in detail at all 444 species of European butterflies along with additional information on nearly 70 species from the far east of Europe up to the Urals and the Caucasus.

Showcasing the stunning macro photography of the authors, this is a photographic field guide with a difference. Detailed text provides information on features such as identification, confusion species, habitat, lifestyle and larval host plant, accompanied by accurate range maps. The photographs have been carefully selected to allow identification from views of upperwing and, where possible, underwing; there are also sections covering caterpillar identification.

This comprehensive and detailed book represents the last word in European butterfly identification – no entomologist should be without it.
