The second edition of the award-winning book The Complete Field Guide to Butterflies of Australia is a fully updated guide to all butterfly species on Australia’s mainland and remote islands.
Written by one of Australia’s leading lepidopterists, Dr Michael Braby, the book is illustrated with colour photographs, many of which are new, of each of the 435 currently recognised species.
There is also a distribution map and flight chart for each species on the Australian mainland, together with information on similar species, variation, behaviour, habitat, status and larval food plants.
Dr Michael Braby has been collecting and studying Australian butterflies for more than 35 years. He is a Visiting Fellow at the Australian National University and Chief Editor of Austral Entomology.
I highly recommend this book.
