Butterflies of Corfu

product image

The book “Butterflies of Corfu” is an important tool for those interested in Corfu’s rich fauna and especially its insects.

It is the result of the extensive scientific research of the authors whose aims were:

  1. to produce the only, up to now, Field Guide to the sixty nine (69) butterfly species identified in Corfu by the authors – researching team.
  2. to become a scientific point of reference in order to document Corfu Lepidoptera.
  3. to raise awareness among residents and visitors of the island in matters of environmental protection and biodiversity conservation.

Apart from the many and varied photos which accompany the text on the Lepidoptera, this book includes a wealth of environmental and distribution data on all butterfly types which can be found in Corfu and is therefore a valuable source of information.

Corfu Press would like thank the authors of the book “Butterflies of Corfu” for their efforts to protect Corfiot nature through their research, observations and actions, traits that set them apart as environmentally-conscious and active citizens.
