Field Guide to the Caterpillars of Great Britain and Ireland [9781472933560]

(2 reviews) Write a Review

'A much-needed guide - you can't truly understand a moth or a butterfly without first getting to know the caterpillar.' - Nick Baker

This beautifully illustrated field guide covers caterpillars of the moth and butterfly species that are most likely to be encountered in the British Isles.

The comprehensive introduction covers how to study caterpillars and provides a window into their diverse natural histories, while the species accounts cover status, field characters, similar species, habitat, foodplant and field notes, and are accompanied with up-to-date distribution maps.

AUTHOR: Phil Sterling is a lifelong lepidopterist and is the senior author of the Field Guide to the Micro-moths of Great Britain and Ireland. Barry Henwood has devoted much of his entomological time over the past 40 years to rearing larvae of macro-moths, and to furthering an understanding of their life histories, and is one of just a handful of experts in Britain in this area. Richard Lewington is an acknowledged leader in the field of insect illustration. His meticulous paintings of wildlife are the mainstay of many of the modern classics of field-guide art, including The Butterflies of Britain and Ireland, Guide to Garden Wildlife and Field Guide to the Bees of Great Britain and Ireland. Richard has also designed and illustrated wildlife stamps for several countries. In 1999 he was awarded Butterfly Conservation's Marsh Award for the promotion of Lepidoptera conservation, and in 2010 the Zoological Society of London's Stamford Raffles Award for contribution to zoology.

    Beautifully illustrated as usual. I always enjoy using these field guides more so than the others on the market.

    An excellent addition to my field guides if moths and butterflies. Richard Lewington's illustrations are outstanding and the book is well researched.
