Praise for the Through Binoculars series:
"May do for butterflies what Roger Tory Peterson's landmark handbooks did for birds in the 1930s."--The Village Voice
"The authors, all independent scholars, are among the leading lepidopterists in North America. This book fulfilled the reviewer's expectations that it would be a masterpiece. It presents the most comprehensive treatment of North American butterfly caterpillars available, vastly surpassing all other general references...This bool is destined to become a classic." Choice

Great layout and lots of information and photos on every page! Each page is laid out with the common and scientific caterpillar names and is followed by a brief description of their appearance, their habitat, months they are commonly found, host plants, and additional comments. Each name is shown with a corresponding mini US map outlining in which regions they are found.
The adjacent page shows photos of the corresponding larva by number. It can also show multiple photos of the same species if they vary by brood. The glossary and indices are informative and appear accurate. Other helpful information includes cross-references that tell you what plant attracts which larvae, and so on.
Please see pics for more detail. Recommended & please click "yes" if helpful. Thanks!
I would not worry about the classification layout.
