Given that they are found in a huge range of habitats, from the porch light to the forests, pastures and high country, it is easy to stumble across our moths and butterflies.
There are 1720 named species in this book, mostly moths, but many have not yet been named. This book, written and photographed by experts in their fields, introduces important and striking species of both main islands, describing their appearance, behaviour and life cycle. It explains which species are endemic and which have probably ‘blown over’ at some point from Australia and other neighbours, and gives useful tips on how readers can find, identify and study these beautiful invertebrates for themselves.
