Product description


'Richard Lewington's illustrations are magnificent…Tom Tolman's text is excellent too' New Scientist

'the identification plates are without equal in any modern field guide to butterflies' P. J. de Vries, Centre for Biodiversity Studies, Milwaukee Public Museum


A comprehensive field guide to all the butterfly species of Britain and Europe, illustrated with over 2,000 paintings by the leading artist in the field, Richard Lewington. This comprehensive guide to the butterflies of the whole of Europe and North Africa describes and illustrates all 440 species. There are paintings of the male, female, and, where appropriate, all major forms. Distribution maps accompany every widespread species and all the information for the book has been researched from original sources. The text covers all taxonomic nomenclature, distribution, flight period, variation, habitat, behaviour, life cycle, food plants and conservation. An ideal field guide for travelling naturalists and the perfect reference for those wanting to discover more about butterflies themselves.
