About this book

Language: English

This is the completely revised and expanded edition of the original edition that sold out quickly. Butterflies of Thailand is well-organized and contains a wealth of information. Many of the butterflies described and illustrated also occur in many countries in southeast Asia. A comprehensive treatment of 1287 species (1604 species and subspecies) is provided in Butterflies of Thailand. Species are described from 332 genera in five families. The scientific and Thai name, description, length and distribution, and one or more clear photos of specimens are included for each species. In addition, there are photos of representative butterflies from each family taken in natural settings.

This informative and generously illustrated book is an essential reference for both professional and amateur lepidopterists worldwide.
