Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jean Baptiste Alphonse Dechauffour de Boisduval (June 17, 1799 - December 30, 1879) was a French lepidopterist and physician. He developed the Boisduval scale and identified many new species of butterflies. One of the most celebrated lepidopterists of France, he was the co-founder of the Soci t Entomologique de France. Early in his career, he was interested in Coleoptera and allied himself with both Lacordaire and Latreille. He was the curator of the Pierre Fran oise Marie Auguste Dejean collection in Paris and described many species of beetles, as well as butterflies and moths, resulting from the voyages of the Astrolabe, the expedition ship of Jean-Fran ois de Galaup, comte de La P rouse and the "Coquille," that of Louis Isidore Duperrey.show more
