Media reviews

"[...] The focus of the book is squarely on identification and enabling visitors to Sri Lanka to identify the butterflies they see. To that end it has been superbly designed. [...] The book is small and therefore easy to carry but also seems robustly made, which is essential for a field guide that is likely to 'get some hammer' from extensive use in the field. [...] The authors can be highly commended for putting together such a well laid out, easy to use and informative book, which is now not only the essential field guide for Sri Lanka but will also be useful for identifying other common and widespread butterflies in southern Asia."
– Tom Brereton, Atropos 64, September 2019
