Butterflies of West Texas Parks and Preserves

by Wauer, Roland


This book describes and illustrates the fifty most common butterflies to be found in the region, along with eleven additional “specialties” unique to the far western part of the state. In his introduction to the book, noted naturalist Ro Wauer describes the general feeding habits of the butterflies of the region. He then provides details on each species, including how to distinguish it from similar species, when and where to find it, and other facts about its habits and appearance. Full-color photographs show each of the fifty common species and six of the “specialties.” This book will join bird and wildflower field guides in the backpacks of nature lovers who plan to explore West Texas to the fullest extent and who want an accurate, fully illustrated guide to the butterflies of the region.
