Description:

An excellent resource for entomologists, this Butterflies and Moths of the World website was created by Brian Pitkin and Paul Jenkins of the Natural History Museum in London (NHM). The site was designed "to compile a comprehensive interactive catalogue of all the published genus-group names of Lepidoptera from Linnaeus, 1758, up to the present, and to provide full-colour images of representatives of most included families." This online catalog contains over 30,000 entries and over 400 full-color images. Additionally, a bibliography is included that provides over 6,000 references. Site visitors can conduct searches for a specific genus, type-species, bibliographical reference, or image.
