About this book

Whether you are watching the progress of a caterpillar as it moves along a plant or become captivated by the sight of a pupa hanging from a silk pad, caterpillars are some of our most captivating and beautiful insects. But can you tell a Comma from a Small Tortoiseshell? Or distinguish between the caterpillar of a Drinker and a Fox Moth? These are just a few of the hundreds of butterfly and moth caterpillars found in the UK, many of which are just as beautiful and varied as their adult counterparts.

RSPB ID Spotlight: Caterpillars is a reliable fold-out chart that presents illustrations of 61 of our most widespread and familiar caterpillars by renowned artist Richard Lewington.
- Species are grouped by family and helpfully labelled to assist with identification
- Artworks are shown side by side for quick comparison and easy reference at home or in the field
- The reverse of the chart provides information on the habitats, behaviour, life cycles and diets of our caterpillars, as well as the conservation issues they are facing and how the RSPB and other conservation charities are working to support them
- Practical tips on how to monitor caterpillar populations and turn your garden into a haven for caterpillars are also included

The RSPB ID Spotlight charts help wildlife enthusiasts identify and learn more about our most common species using accurate colour illustrations and informative, accessible text.
