This guide aims to provide amateur naturalists, bushwalkers and others with a detailed account of butterflies found in Victoria and beyond. Information on butterfly behaviour, biology, relevant habitat, ecology and diversity are all covered in this comprehensive book.

Species descriptions are accompanied by colour photographs of all the life stages of the butterfly, as well as information on food plants and habitat. The anatomy of the butterfly is described in detail, using both line-art and photography. Maps, checklists, further references, a glossary, scientific and common name indices are also included.
