Published in 2017/2018 as a non-profit collaboration between the publisher M/s. Bishen Singh Mahendra Pal Singh (Dehradun) and Titli Trust (Dehradun), National Centre for Biological Sciences (Bengaluru), and Indian Foundation for Butterflies (Bengaluru), along with the state forest department. This book covers all the 500 species of butterflies that have been reported from Uttarakhand since the 1880’s. These species are illustrated with more than 1,000 photographs or digital images of butterflies. It provides key identification features and short notes on the natural history of all the species. An annotated checklist of butterflies of Uttarakhand and an extensive list of references on the butterflies of Uttarakhand is provided at the end. This field guide was prepared to promote butterfly tourism in Uttarakhand, but it is hoped that not only tourists and nature guides, but also researchers, students, teachers and other nature lovers will enjoy exploring the world of butterflies with the help of this book.
