I've had this book for a few weeks now, and at first I thought it was really good. There are, however, a number of drawbacks (hence the 2star rating): first of all, the features for identification aren't particularly clear. For example, the Meadow Brown in the book is not typical, and certainly looks different from the Meadow Browns I have encountered this year. Because of this, I had initially thought they were Small Heaths (e.g. the "eye" on the wings of these: the Small Heath is presented in the book as having a white dot, and a broad white line along the underwings. The Meadow Brown appears not to have either, according to the book. Yet, in reality most Meadow Brown butterflies have a white dot in the "eye", too, and a greyish line is not unheard of, either. This left me confused and questioning whether other IDs (that I'm not that familiar with) are equally 'off'.
The second issue is that many European species are included - to the degree where ID is really tricky as there are so many different options to choose from. Only once you notice the small distribution map for each entry does it become clear that at least 75% of the butterflies covered in the book never really appear in the UK. I highlighted all butterflies I was likely to see in my area with a highlighter pen. Still, a book just about the UK would have been more helpful.
Finally, almost all butterflies are listed as 'widespread'. I've since learnt that this is really not the case - some are quite rare (e.g. the white admiral - I wouldn't really class that as 'widespread' in the literal sense of the word. Maybe a more detailed classification would be more useful?
I'm now going to buy other reference books in my attempt to ID butterflies, as this particular book just isn't clear enough!

A perfect book for the task of identifying what we have in France, where we live and the UK. Not too complicated to peruse and fine for the job.

Compact, well illustrated, and informative. Includes 2 photos of adult butterfly, illustration of the caterpillar, indicates dimensions, a small map of Europe indicates locations where you find it, and it doesn't stop there.... Great book to take along on walks and serves as a reference book back at home. Excellent.

I have been looking for a book for a while to help me identify butterflies and moths. This book ticks most of the boxes and being DK is of high quality. I do find it a bit cluttered though and it has taken me a little while to get used to it.

All in all a good purchase.

I bought this book, so that I could identiy the vast array of butterflies in my garden.
I wanted a publication with good colour illustrations and a reasonable overview of
the butterfly's life cycle without being too academic.
Recommend this book as a good reference for the amateur butterfly spotter!!

DK books have always been my favourites - the book includes great image and details of the trees height,flowering time and general details, the size of the tree compared to a 6ft man standing next to it - and the latin name
