About this book

Designed for easy, rapid identification of all butterflies likely to be seen in South Africa. Following a worldwide trend to butterfly watching, this book encourages the observation of behaviour rather than the collection of specimens. A detailed introductory section discusses butterfly biology, behaviour and anatomy, and butterfly families and subfamilies. A comprehensive section on individual butterfly species provides a wealth of information - scientific and English common names, information on flight periods and numbers of broods, behavioural traits and differentiation from similar species, as well as notes on size, geographical distribution and larval food sources. Photographs are mostly of live specimens taken in the wild, and include under and uppersides, and diomorphism where necessary.
