About this book

Language: German

This identification handy guide presents all butterflies in Switzerland, south of the Alps from the Jura. Over 200 species of butterflies are depicted in their original size – with impressive and detailed colour drawings – and the most important characteristics are highlighted in such a way that a quick identification is possible. In addition, a colour photograph is shown for the caterpillar of each butterfly species. Concise and expert texts on the characteristics, the food plants of the caterpillars and the habitat provide a comprehensive picture of the species. The distribution map and a table on the seasonal development of eggs, caterpillar, pupa and moth complete the important information. A list of similar species and their respective distinguishing features rounds out this field guide.

Summary in German:

Die über 200 Schmetterlingsarten sind - mit eindrücklichen und detailgenauen Farbzeichnungen - jeweils in Originalgröße abgebildet und die wichtigsten Bestimmungsmerkmale so hervorgehoben, dass ein rasches Bestimmen möglich ist. Zudem wird von jedem Falter auch ein Farbfoto der Raupe gezeigt. Knappe und fachkundige Texte zu den Merkmalen, den Futterpflanzen der Raupen und dem Lebensraum vermitteln ein umfassendes Bild der Art. Die Verbreitungskarte und eine Tabelle zur jahreszeitlichen Entwicklung von Eier, Raupe, Puppe und Falter ergänzen die wichtigen Informationen. Mit einer Auflistung der ähnlichen Arten und den jeweiligen Unterscheidungsmerkmalen wird das Schmetterlingsporträt abgerundet.
