Butterflies List [2016 Revision]

Home
Wildlife

Here is a Butterfly list for the site based mainly on my own observations. The checklist follows the new checklist order given in A checklist of the Lepidoptera of the British Isles by Agassiz, D.J.L., Beavan, S.D. & Heckford R.J., 2013. All records are my own unless stated, so any inaccuracy is entirely down to me. If anyone has records they'd like to include, please contact me and I will insert and acknowledge them accordingly.
