Wonderfully Wild
Books on the Biodiversity of Clare

The Butterflies of Ireland, a field guide by Dr Norman Hickin
Roberts Rinehart 1992

Hickin’s book provides a detailed description of all the butterflies you are likely to find in Ireland and diagrams of their different life stages. There are maps illustrating each butterfly’s distribution in Ireland as well as a table showing the months that eggs, caterpillars, pupae and butterflies can be found. Given the colourfulness of butterflies it is unfortunate that the diagrams are only in black and white. This book is very useful if you already have some knowledge of or a keen interest in butterflies. It is quite technical and not likely to appeal to a beginner.
