Well I'm getting it for Christmas so I'll report back. There is a surprising lack of butterfly books for the region.

I'd be interested to hear about it. I looked for reviews after you mentioned it here... nothing.
There are a few unidentified butterflies (mostly Bush Browns) from TZ left on my list!

I spent ages looking for reviews. Their complete absence is rather weird. I figured it was worth a punt now it's been reduced to £25.

I've got it Steve, it's pretty good, photos of specimens but it's a large format, not field guide size. As you say though, not a lot available for the region so it's much better than nothing.

Cheers Andy. Odd that there's a major Odonata guide but not a butterfly one. Let's hope I get to use it before to long, although my hope of getting to Tanzania during the coming Easter is probably stuffed. Still hoping for Uganda later in the year though.
