Glassberg, J. 2007. A Swift Guide to the Butterflies of Mexico and Central America. Sunstreak Books, Morristown, NJ. 266 pp.


Illustrates, with 3250 full color photographs, almost all of the more than 1700 kinds of butterflies (including skippers) found in Mexico plus many species found only in other parts of Central America. Includes greater than two-thirds of all Costa Rican species.

Succinct field marks allow easy identification of most species. Arrows show you exactly what to look for.

Detailed Mexican range maps, for each species, help you to choose among similar possibilities.

Known caterpillar foodplants are given.

This is the first complete field guide to the butterflies of Mexico or any Central or South American country.

The first book to include not only all species recorded from the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas, but also all possible strays from Mexico, this is an essential tool for butterflying this exciting portion of the United States.
