A Guide to the Butterflies of Ireland

A Guide to the Butterflies of Ireland was stimulated by the need for a simple publication to help to identify butterflies in the field, or for display as a wall chart. 

Revised in 2010 to include the Essex Skipper and updated Time of Flight Chart.



The Chart when folded is 180 mm x 297 mm in size and opens out into three panels.

Side one has 69 full coloured illustrations of butterflies from the original paintings by Richard Lewington the well known butterfly illustrator.          

The butterflies are grouped together as "browns", "blues" etc. The 28 resident Irish butterflies are shown and views of underwing of both male and female when there is a significant difference in appearance.
The three most frequent immigrants are also included.

Erratum: Incorrect spelling of Small Tortoiseshell
