The definitive field guide to South African butterflies.

This spectacular new edition of Field Guide to Butterflies of South Africa is the only guide to cover all 671 butterfly species that occur in South Africa. Designed for easy identification and optimal use in the field, this guide is an invaluable resource for any visiting naturalist or tourist to the country.

Fully revised and expanded, it includes notes on size, identification, habitat, flight periods and larval food sources, plus notes on mimicry, plus accurate maps. More than 2,000 photographs fully showcase the region's diverse butterfly fauna, with full-color images of male and female forms (where different) and of upper- and undersides (where possible) on pages facing the species entries, for easy reference.

Steve Woodhall is a British-born amateur butterfly enthusiast and photographer, who has lived in South Africa for 40 years. After developing an interest in butterflies at the age of five, he went on to be President of the Lepidopterists' Society of Africa. He has written and contributed to several titles, including A Practical Guide to Butterflies and Moths.
