I use this small pocket guide, part of the Golden Nature Guide series, primarily for identification of moths. There seems to be a plethora of excellent guides for butterflies, few for moths. I could only have wished that Golden had focused solely on moths given the limited space in these small guides.
For their size and compression of info, the Golden Nature Guides are truly little gems with really good illustrations. You can't go wrong starting here.

very very basic, but perfect if that's what you're after!

This is a very basic guide for beginner lepidopterists/entomologists. I appreciated the detailed description of both adults and larvae near the illustrations, but it was frustrating to see only upper or under sides of many species. And some species were discussed, but not properly shown. The scientific names are found in the Index section, but aren't mentioned in the actual text around the illustrations either. I would say this could supplement, not replace, other insect identification materials ...more

This book is excellent for identifying and studying butterflies and moths. I have used this for school and hobby study of these denizens of the air.
