This is a superb new identification guide to nearly 500 species of Europe butterflies and moths, including most of those one is likely to see in Britain. Each species is illustrated, usually in its natural habitat, with one or more colour photographs, and for many species there is a drawing of the caterpillar or pupa. In each case the text faces the photographs and describes the main characteristics, flight period, habitat, distribution and life cycle of each species. There is an introduction to the fascinating biology of butterflies and moths, and sections on their study and conservation.
