The Butterflies guide features all 60 wild butterflies found in Britain and Ireland.

Our UK Butterfly chart consists of 8 fold-out pages featuring full-colour illustrations, making the identification of butterflies easy to follow. There’s a further butterfly identification guide on the reverse side, with a text description of the characteristics of each species.

It’s designed for speedy butterfly identification in the field, with beautiful colour life-size paintings of each butterfly by acclaimed artist Richard Lewington. We have shown both upper wings and under wings, so you can identify butterflies in flight and at rest. Similar-looking butterflies are close to each other for easy comparison.

Making a butterfly list is a great first step into wildlife identification. Some are easy to identify. But for others you might need to take a closer look. Is that a Small White or a Large White eating your cabbages? Is that a Common Blue or a Holly Blue fluttering along the hedge? With experience you can guess Ringlet or Speckled Wood from flight pattern alone. This Butterfly guide can help!
