Image Search

Use this form to directly locate images of butterflies, larva, pupa, foodplants and habitat.

While it is great to be able to dissect the butterfly data into names, places, latitudes and longitudes, seasonality / flight time etc, it might be nice to actually SEE an image of the animal.

There are many sources that will show you images of the adult butterfly; however, the images presented here will also show you a range of egg, larva, pupa, foodplant and habitat images for a range of species.

Please note that not all species in the database have an accompanying image.
