The main part of the book consists of 144 plates with more than 6400 accurate colour illustrations at approximately 60 per cent of natural size. At least one species for most of the known genera is shown. The most up-to date taxonomy was used in the brief, authoritative text that accompanies each plate, showing the number of known species in the genus and the distributions of the species. The book is arranged according to 5 faunal regions, and follows as closely as possible the taxonomic sequences within those faunal regions. Beautifully produced, this book is an indispensable quick reference for any serious butterfly enthusiast.
