Author: Marc C. Minno


This waterproof guide beautifully illustrates over 80 species of butterflies and all of their caterpillars. The pocket-sized guide features color photos in a side-by-side format making it ideal for a Florida Master Naturalist's field use. Common as well as unusual butterflies such as King’s Hairstreak and the Gemmed Satyr are shown.


Common and scientific names, adult size, season when they can be found, and their caterpillar host plants are listed. Tips on finding butterflies and caterpillars are given and the life cycle of the Gulf Fritillary is illustrated. Nature enthusiast of all ages will enjoy using this guide.


The guide’s six double-sided panels fold up into a packet narrow enough to fit in a back pocket yet sturdy enough to stand up under repeated use. Don't worry about the Florida's rain - the lamination has also made the guide waterproof.
