The clearest recognition guides available Authoritative text, crystal-clear photography, and a systematic approach make the Smithsonian Handbook of Butterflies and Moths the most comprehensive and concise pocket guide to butterflies and moths of the world. Packed with more than 600 full-color photographs of over 500 species, this handy pocket guide is designed to cut through the complex process of identification to enable you to recognize a species instantly. Thoroughly researched and expertly written, each species entry combines a precise description with annotated photographs to highlight the chief characteristics and distinguishing features of each butterfly and moth.

The book provides a visual identity key that photographically lists the families you will find in each region, and guides you to the correct entries. A concise glossary explains all technical and scientific terms used in the book.
