Although this is now a dead thread - I would recommend Butterflies of Britain and Europe - A Photographic Guide by Haahtela, Saarinen, Ojalainen and Arnio as a butterfly guide that I find better for use in the field than Tolman and Lewington which was mentioned in post #17.

Thanks Paul for reminding me of this. I knew there was a photographic guide that was highly recommended, but don't have it myself. In the field in Europe I use the Mitchell Beazley pocket guide. It's out of print and probably very dated but has the advantage of genuinely fitting in a pocket. The Tolman guide I leave in the hotel for later reference.

Reprint (updated?) now available quite cheaply on Amazon..............
