About the Authors

Jeffrey E. Belth, a lifelong lover of butterflies and entomology, has been photographing butterflies in Indiana for 25 years.


"[T]his is unquestionably the finest local butterfly field guide ever produced. . . . In summary, I would suggest this field guide to everyone who has an interest in North American butterflies. Although it treats only the fauna of Indiana, its significance extends well beyond the boundaries of that state. If I were to write my dream field guide, it would surely resemble Butterflies of Indiana."—News of the Lepidopterists' Society

"This unique effort is the most complete guide to butterfly watching I've ever seen—with visual identification keys that a true novice can follow, supplemented with accurate status updates, distribution maps and abundance and seasonal graphs. If these were all it included, it would be an admirable accomplishment—but there are another 150 pages devoted to butterfly life history, habitats, conservation, habitat management, gardening, photography, collecting, watching and more. This is the complete guide to the appreciation of Indiana's butterflies."—John Shuey, Director of Conservation Science, Indiana Chapter of the Nature Conservancy and past president of th

"My excitement about our state's butterflies jumped several notches after reading the superbly illustrated Butterflies of Indiana: A Field Guide. It is a must-have book for anyone interested in these jewels of the insect world."—Michael A. Homoya, author of Wildflowers and Ferns of Indiana Forests: A Field Guide
