At first, I wasn't too excited about the illustrations, they seemed a bit crude and few in number. But the species descriptions are excellent. Also, an excellent selection of species on each page of plates, each with a catchy heading. ( )

This is one of those more comprehensive bug books I was talking about and it's been great so far to help me with IDing white admirals and different checkerspots that hang out in the wildflowers that line my street. Butterflies are grouped together by type and color with handy little indicators on the side of the book so you can get to the right color. Similar species are shown side by side and the information includes a range map, where the butterfly lives and what it eats as a caterpillar. I'm happy to say that the pictures show the wings open and closed. Alas it does not include moths so that will probably be another book to add to the collection!

This recentlypublished butterfly guide is very good. It has pretty thorough coverage of the butterfly species, good images, good binding, and the accompanying test is righ there on the same page as the image.

The only downside of having the text adjacent to the image is that it seems to have limitee both the text formatting and the detail fo the text itself.

However, still a very good guide. ( )
