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.

Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Could be better
Not all the specimens have pictures of them with wings closed. I tried to list a sighting and none of the instructions worked and I ended up going in circles but couldn't list a sighting.
I've seen a butterfly that is not listed so I am not sure if the listing is complete.
The app doesn't really help users to navigate so, with the comments above, I can't give it top marks.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
