Field guide to butterflies of Israel/Middle-east

Hi all

Does a field guide to Israel's butterflies exist?

I don't know if this includes Israel, it includes N Africa so it might?

Edit; I don't think it does, according to the map that can be seen here, it doesn't even cover Turkey.

The Hebrew one may have scientific names in latin script plus maps so could be useful. I'm told that Hebrew has no vowel sounds so I don't see how they could even approximate a phonetic representation of the names?

In text pages and maps, all is in Hebrew ....would be a major challenge to use this book I feel.

There is a well-illustrated book by Larsen on the butterflies of Lebanon,in English,which is just up the road. Its not a field guide but is full of colour illustrations.

Thanks for your help. I think I may go for photographing everything and seeing if I can justify the cost of the recent Lebabnon one when I get back or whether I should see what I can id on-line.
