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.

Ratings and Reviews
Don't waste your money!
Got this thinking it would be perfect to use when traveling, hiking etc. Interface is awful on the iPad. On the iPhone it is not much better. On the iPad you click on a photo to get detail and the app crashes. You reenter and it does the same thing. On the iPhone you can see the photo but the inface is very poor. The entire app needs to be redone! No updates for 6 months!
Not a good interface and photos are so small you can’t even really see what the butterflies look like. Every time I click on a photo or species name to get more info or a bigger picture, the app shuts down. Would love a refund!
Do not buy
Does not have any photos that download with the app and if you try to download them in the app it tells you to try again later. Have been trying for four days.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
