Book Review: A Naturalist’s Guide to the Butterflies of Thailand and Southeast Asia by Dr Laurence G. Kirton

This spectacular small paperback of 176 pages provides an easy to use photographic identification guide to 280 butterfly species occurring within Thailand Malaysia and Singapore and other areas of south-east Asia. Another 190 species and subspecies are referred to (listed). For each illustrated species, there is a brief authoritative text which described the identifying features, distribution, subspecies as well as general habits and habitats. The photographs are really beautiful and are all top class in terms of contrast, sharpness and exposure. The book includes towards the rear, a complete classification at the generic level, of the butterfly genera of Thailand. Some of the photographs show butterflies feeding such as on flowers, e.g. the Common Yellow Jezebel (Delias baracasa) on Lantana camara flowers, butterflies mud-puddling, e.g. the Red Helen (Papilio helenus) and the Great Mormon (Papilio memnon) as well as feeding on bird dung (Common Palmfly- Elymnias hypermnestra)). This book was most useful on a recent trip to Thailand where I identified 37 species from the book out of a total of about 40 species which I photographed or took notes on.

There is a one page bibliography and an index at the end of the book. I would have liked more information on biology and habits. However, this production is highly recommended and should easily compliment other more scientific books on the Thailand, Malaysian and Singaporean butterfly faunas.

A nicely done introductory field guide 31 mars 2015

This attractive and inexpensive book serves as an admirable introduction to the huge butterfly fauna of SE Asia. It includes pretty much everything we expect nowadays and that says a lot. There is a well written introduction that discusses the region and its habitats, climate and seasonality, as well as butterfly anatomy, distribution, and behavior. There are stunning photos from many excellent photographers, lists of print and Internet references including clubs and tourism agencies, suggestions of where to find butterflies in several countries, and a current classification to the generic level. I wanted it to be ten times thicker but I can't fault the author for writing a book that sells instead of sitting on the bookstore shelf.
