The Butterflies of Thailand

A complete list of species and subspecies found in Thailand. Click on the required Family, with links to photos on the web, where available. I have used Butterflies of Thailand by Pisuth Ek-Amnuay, 2nd Edition, as the basis for the list, with checks with that excellent resource, Butterflies of Indo-China. (See 'Links' for full details.) Some species have not been included owing to a lack of reliable verification, and newly discovered species and subspecies are being added as and when they are found. For these new entries, details of location are included where known.

Not all the links show specimens photographed in Thailand, there are photographs from China, India, Singapore, Malaysia and Cambodia, but they do show the correct subspecies.

If anyone has photos on the internet of species/subspecies not linked here, I would be happy to add a link to your site for that species.

If anyone comes across any links that fail, please let me know, as it is impossible for me to keep up to date with each and every link provided.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS AN ONGOING PROJECT WITH NEW PICTURE LINKS BEING ADDED WHEN FOUND:



Papilionidae
Pieridae
Nymphalidae - Danainae
Nymphalidae - Satyrinae
Nymphalidae - Morphinae
Nymphalidae - Other Subfamilies

Much thanks is given to those website owners who have given permission to link to their photos.
