There is also a distribution map for each species on the Australian mainland. It covers the five major family groups: Hesperiidae, Paplionidae, Pieridae, Nymphalidae and Lycaenidae, as well as the family Riodinidae, which has but a single species in Australia.

    Review quote
    ... a book as technically accurate and artistically pleasing as any I have seen in recent years. ... I highly recommend it for professional entomologists and amateurs alike. "
