This page of Wings & Things is intended to provide links to articles of interest for those seeking to identify butterflies encountered locally and throughout the world. As we identify new sites with valuable information, we will update this page with the new links, so be sure to bookmark for your return visit.
Handbooks are always useful, especially in the field. A few I refer to frequently are :Kaufman Focus Guides “Butterflies of North America”, the National Audubon Society’s ‘Field Guide to Butterflies”, and Smithsonian Handbooks “Butterflies and Moths”. The last of these three doesn’t offer as complete a listing of our American species, but does provide tantalizing illustrations of both butterflies and moths from all around the world!
