Butterflies and Moths of the World

Help: Searching the images

The 'Search images' page includes a single dialogue box with a drop-down list of families represented by images. Please note, not all 131 families included in the catalogue are currently represented by images.

Click on the down arrow and select a family.

On releasing the mouse button a search is initiated which returns a list of images in the chosen family plus a thumbnail image of each species. If necessary, you may scroll through this list using the scroll bar to the right-hand side of the page.

Clicking on a species name in the list or clicking on an image initiates another search, which returns an enlarged view of the image plus its country of origin, wingspan and photographic credit.
