Another app in our North American Wildlife series...

This app shows the 70 most common butterfly species found in the Southwest of the US. For each species there are three high-resolution pictures (also of the larvae, if available), a brief description of its size (wingspan), significant features, host plant(s), and flight season. Included is a link to view the corresponding Wikipedia pages within the application window. All descriptive information is in English, the butterfly species and family/subfamily names are also shown in scientific (Latin) nomination.

The app features a modern, intuitive interface with easy navigation and search facilities for finding a butterfly by its name or searching in the full text for features and characteristics. You can also narrow down the search by color and family.
