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, the book is stunningly 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.

I reviewed the first edition and this one is even better


I reviewed the first edition (check out the back cover), and this second edition builds on the strengths of the original.

This fieldguide is slightly better than its counterpart 'fieldguide to dragonflies', but still not as good as i have seen in other fieldguides. would not recommend unfortunately.
