About this book

Language: French

This guide presents in condensed form 2,050 identification criteria for Swiss butterflies and red burnet moths. In an ideal format for taking into the field, richly illustrated and written in such a way as to be accessible to a broad public, it allows anyone interested in butterflies to identify quickly and relatively easily any of the 216 species present in Switzerland.

The book comprises three parts: an intuitive and easy-to-use identification key (aimed mainly at beginners), plates illustrating the diagnostic characters of each species (intended more for those already having an overview of the different species), and a chapter containing the distribution map, phenology and altitudinal distribution of each species.

Its publication is the fruit of many years’ work compiling identification criteria, drawing both on the existing literature and the personal experience of the authors and Swiss butterfly specialists.
