About this book

The first and second volumes of Fibigeriana (published in 2012 and 2013) provided a comprehensive demonstration of the impressively species-rich Noctuoidea, Lasiocampoidea, Bombycoidea, Drepanoidea, Cossoidea, Zygaenoidea and Hepialoidea material of the Vartian Collection. The newly published third item of the series is a detailed summary of the impressively large and beautiful Rhopalocera material of the famous collection.

This remarkable part of the collection (stored in 257 drawers!) besides the best represented North African and Middle East fauna, includes material practically from all continents, including some historical material from Inner Asia and the tropical areas. Thus, the number of the distinguished butterfly taxa is really high, counting altogether 1 174 species and subspecies. During the preparation of Fibigeriana, Volume 3, the working team took some 15 000 colour photos of which the 183 colour plates of the present volume have been composed from.

The third volume of the lepidopterological series Fibigeriana can be considered also as an identification guide to the Rhopalocera fauna of the Western Palaearctic. The detailed checklist contains information on the countries where specimens of each taxa were collected. Fibigeriana, Volume 3 is warmly recommended to all amateur and professional butterfly enthusiasts.
