Intelligent, concise editing with beautiful illustrations

This guide contains pertinent and enough information of each species, including their locale and migration to make you want to go out and start looking for them. Beautiful illustrations are on every page, which you can enlarge in an eBook. I've been studying nature illustration and appreciate the drawings as opposed to photographs. Highly recommend adding the Golden Rule collection to your library, especially the digital editions.

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

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.

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.

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.
