eButterflyNA - Butterflies & Moths of North America - A Butterfly App is a member of the World Life Forms family of products designed to provide easy to use, powerful tools for accessing images and information of the world's diverse life forms.
With over 450 life forms (counts by family are below), eButterflyNA can serve as a reference tool for entomologists, educators and students. The life forms are accessible by common name, latin name and taxonomy.
Each life form is presented with an image, a textual description, and it's taxonomy tree. Maps are also included for many of the life forms.
A free sampler, eLifeFormsW - A Search Life Forms Sampler is available for free download and review. We strongly recommend all interested customers download and sample the demonstration version before buying our paid for products. This "try before you buy" policy allows for interacting with the user interface, content sampling and overall review of the presentation. As regular users of wild life reference materials, we believe our products are best positioned as a supplement to the field guides, software identification tools, atlases and other animal and plant life compendiums and not a replacement.

To begin with, this is butterflies of the world, not North America. If you select North America as your area interest, there are only 88 butterflies for viewing. And good luck finding them! This app must have been organized by three chimps on steroids. The layout is a mess, a mishmash of latin names and unhelpful texts. The photos are of mediocre quality at best. I would like my money back.
Not well organized. Main problem is small "browse" photos. You almost have to open each one to see photo large enough to identify your subject. Please fix. Thanks
And a waste of money. For the price the database needs to be maintained and the interface must work
