  Viceroy and monarch butterflies look very similar. It was once thought that the viceroy evolved to mimic the monarch, whose bright orange and black coloration is a signal to predators that the monarch tastes bad.

Since the butterflies and moths in their various forms are depicted in situ with their host plants, the publication is effectively a flower book as well as a manual of lepidoptery. In the illustrations above, the small Ermine moth is shown with the Orange-peach with its blossom and the Swallowtail butterfly with the Meadow Saxifrage.

Some of these species have been relatively under-recorded in recent years or appear to have surprisingly limited distributions - have a look at the moth maps and dates on the branch website. Two species with apparently similar.
