about

This easy-to-use identification guide to the 280 butterfly species most commonly seen in India is perfect for resident and visitor alike.

High quality photographs from India's top nature photographers are accompanied by detailed species descriptions, which include nomenclature, size, distribution, habits and habitat. The user-friendly introduction covers geography and climate, vegetation, opportunities for naturalists and the main sites for viewing the listed species. Also included is an all-important checklist of all of the butterflies of India encompassing, for each species, its common and scientific name, its status in the country as well as its global IUCN status as at 2015.

Peter Smetacek has studied butterflies all his life. He founded the Butterfly Research Centre at Bhimtal, Uttarakhand and recently published a Synoptic Catalogue of the Butterflies of India (edited together with R.K. Varshney), the first publication to list all of the butterfly species occurring in India.
