Field Guide to Butterflies of South Africa is designed for easy, rapid identification of all butterflies likely to be seen in South Africa. 

Following a worldwide trend to butterfly watching, readers are encouraged to observe behaviour rather than collect specimens. A detailed introductory section discusses butterfly biology, behaviour and anatomy, and butterfly families and subfamilies. 

A comprehensive section on individual butterfly species supplies a wealth of information:

  • scientific and English common names,
  • information on flight periods and numbers of broods,
  • behavioural traits and differentiation from similar species,
  • as well as notes on size, geographical distribution and larval food sources.

Photographs are mostly of live specimens taken in the wild, and include under- and uppersides, and dimorphism where necessary.
