Butterfly Id will help you quickly and easily identify species. Butterfly Id is great fun to use. Identification can be enjoyed by the whole family. For the enthusiast there is anatomical, ecological and taxonomic information too.

Butterfly Id can be used to keep a log of your sightings making it easy to build a record of all the butterflies you've seen.

In contrast to other apps Butterfly Id covers all species with hind- and forewings illustrated!

Butterfly Id has been created by professional published ecologists, and uses images selected with the specific aim of aiding identification.

SUNBIRD apps appear in Countryfile's top 10, and have been described as "incredibly useful" by ITV's Seth Conway and "lovely" by Adam Vaughan of the Guardian.

SUNBIRD field guides are the only products on the market that use the KUSAM species identification methodology. This state of the art method is a modern taxonomic keying system designed specifically for use on mobile devices.

The app does not need an internet connection, all content is downloaded when the app is purchased.

Butterfly Id

I find these apps are so useful when out and about. So often I see something and wonder what it is at times I wouldn’t normally have a guide with me - on bushes in a supermarket car park or inside the local cafe. I have failed once or twice but put it down to user/observer error as the likelihood of my finding something too rare to be included is remote. I haven’t got all of them but they certainly make taking the dogs for a walk more interesting.

Great Teaching App for the Curious.

If you are like me and don’t know one butterfly from another then you must get this app. I am a long distance walker and found it frustrating to see beautiful and plain butterflies and did not know what I was looking at. I like nothing better now than photographing one and then identifying and recording my sighting. Get it!!!

These apps are really very good

This app is just what I was looking for excellent, well done. I am very pleased with all these apps in the series, the only one I haven't purchased was the one about snakes etc' not really my thing don't really see them, but if I do then maybe I will complete the set. Just the job for anyone interested in U.Ks nature.
