Colour illustrated poster of common butterflies found in New Zealand, designed so that it can be folded into a handy, portable identification chart.
All butterflies are represented life-size, and scientific name, a brief description, and information about the foodplants of larva are given. Most species, except for the rare visitors, are also accompanied by a distribution map.
Artwork is by Brian Hargreaves, and text by George Gibbs. Scientific names are used according to Fauna of New Zealand 14 Lepidoptera pp 135 -139, by JS Dugdale.
