SEASONAL HIGHLIGHTS

 
 

All species on this website have been re-numbered according to the recently published, and revised 'Checklist of the Lepidoptera of the British Isles'. To find any particular species on this website you have two choices. If you know the name, or the new revised catalogue number you can type these into the search engine, and relevant links for that species will come up on your screen. Click on the displayed link/s and that species will be displayed. The second choice is to click on the ‘MAIN SPECIES, or ‘TO ENTER THIS SITE CLICK HERE page links. This will take you to a page of thumbnail pictures for all the main family groups. Next select the main family group that you wish to view by clicking on the appropriate thumbnail picture. Thumbnail pictures will then be displayed for the sub-families in the main group, or in some cases the individual species. By clicking on these thumbnails you will get to a page that shows a selection of larger pictures for each individual species. In most cases you can click on each larger picture to further enlarge the image. To look at other species, instead of going back to the start, or index page you can move backwards, or forwards from species to species by using the ‘BACK….NEXT links toward the top right on each page.

ABOUT THIS WEBSITE:

 

THIS MONTHS SEASONAL FEATURES

 
 

There are over two thousand five hundred species of lepidoptera to be found in the British Isles, and many thousands of other insects. This website is dedicated to illustrating a small selection of some of these moths, butterflies and other insects to be seen in Britain. The author has compiled, and maintains this website on a voluntary, non profit making basis as a contribution to wildlife education. Both the casual observer, as well as the more seasoned experts may find this collection of entomological photographs useful. Identifications can be made from most of the pictures; also they can be used to compare the geographical variations, and aberrations that some species display. Most specimens illustrated are listed in their taxonomic order , according to the new revised list of British Lepidoptera by Agassiz, Beavan and Heckford. Using this catalogue system each species has its own unique number, for instance the ‘Comma’ butterfly is catalogue number 59.031, and the ‘Cinnabar’ moth is 72.031. All forms of wildlife are arranged into family groups for example butterflies, moths and beetles are three of the main groups. These main groups split down into even smaller sub-families, the white and yellow butterflies are in the family ‘Pieridae’.
