About this book

Please note, this is a reissue of the New Holland Concise Butterfly & Moth Guide, formerly on the natural history list of New Holland publishers.

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-color artworks that show – where relevant – variations in color, 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 Bloomsbury Concise Butterfly & Moth Guide 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, Bloomsbury Concise Butterfly & Moth Guide is wrapped in a durable plastic wallet. Also included is a foldout insert with at-a-glance illustrations showing butterflies and moths by color and pattern. It is suitable for wildlife enthusiasts wanting to identify butterflies and moths in Britain and other parts of northern Europe, for people who want portable yet authoritative wildlife books to take on nature walks or to keep in their home or car.
