2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Jolisa Grobler on May 5, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This book is regarded as the ultimate reference guide on Southern African butterflies, and not without reason. It contains an excess of 800 plates, covering virtually every species and subspecies of the region. Every family, genus and species are discussed in detail. Easy references between plates and descriptions are an added bonus. It was not intended as a taxanomic work though, and mostly discusses localities where specific specimens have been netted or spotted. The reputation of the authors adds authenticity. It is an absolutely brilliant book; indispensible for any serious lepidopterist or mere enthusiast. The hardcover version even makes for a great coffee table item.
