Language: English and scientific nomenclature
Mexico has ten per cent of the world butterfly species or about 1,800 species. This full-colour, beautifully illustrated fold-out field guide slips easily into your pocket but accordions out to give you a spread of over 120 detailed, scientifically accurate illustrations of the butterflies you will see while exploring Mexico.
Illustrations are accompanied by name in English and Latin, size, and in many cases, stages. The back 'cover' contains some general information about butterflies and an illustrated description of the life cycle of the monarch butterfly, in English and in Spanish. This Rainforest Publications pocket guide to the butterflies of Mexico is printed with fade-resistant ink and covered with UV resistant, waterproof laminate, which is extremely durable, and will hold up to many trips into the field.
