About this book

The last edition of the handbook (published in 1992) went out of print in 2005 and since then there have been huge advances in the study of Lepidoptera. This completely new edition includes many new topics, is almost twice the size of the last edition and contains many colour and black & white plates.

The latest edition of A Handbook for Lepidopterists was compiled and authored by Peter May with contributions from Colin Plant, Mark Lightowler, Jon Cooter, Jacqueline Ruffle, the late Mike Majerus, Chris Harlow, Nick Holford, the late Malcolm Simpson, Zoe Randle and Richard Fox.
