This book covers 500 species of butterflies that have been recorded in Uttarakhand since the 1880’s. The book contains photographs of each of the butterfly species and provides key features to identifying them. Species photographs include images taken in nature as well as museum specimens to show their distinctive features. Short notes on the natural history of the butterflies are also included.
