About this book

Revised & updated by Charles Dickson & Douglas Kroon
When originally published, this was the first definitive work devoted solely to southern African butterflies. Now it has been thoroughly revised, with 36 new descriptions and 12 new colour plates incorporated, in addition to detailed information on all known species and subspecies; their descriptions, distributions, common names, habitats, habits and larval foods. This special edition also includes the reproduction of the 20 radio talks given by Ken Pennington in 1965, and 40 detailed life history paintings by Gowan Clarke, some published for the first time.
