Manitoba Butterflies sets a new standard for butterfly field guides, featuring 101 different species of Manitoba’s butterflies and over 1,100 photographs. For the first time in any Canadian field guide, the life cycles of all 101 species are detailed with photographs, some of which have never been published before. Each butterfly is presented over two pages in a clear and easy-to-follow format. Space is provided for butterfly lovers of all ages to track the species they find and the various stages of the life cycle they observe.

Manitoba Butterflies across Canada: Did you know that Manitoba butterflies can be found right across Canada? In fact Manitoba's two closest provincial neighbours, Saskatachewan and Ontario, share over 90% of the butterflies that can be found in this guide. Even Nunavut shares almost 30% of our butterfly species.  Are you curious what butterflies in the field guide appear in other provinces across Canada? Check out the list in the "Butterflies Across Canada" tab below (which includes all 101 butterflies found in the book) to find Manitoba Butterflies near you.

A field guide yes, but more than most. Simone Hébert Allard’s Manitoba Butterflies is visually magnificent. At the same time, the book is full of expert detail, and life history illustration, which has been notoriously hard to find. Her photographs and new information on butterflies of the far North, are a particularly valuable contribution.
—David Shaw, Research Associate, McGuire Center for Lepidoptera

In Manitoba Butterflies, Simone Hébert Allard has created a field guide to native butterflies that will be of interest to scientists, while still being accessible to amateur enthusiasts of all levels of experience. The species pages are clear and intuitive, and will be a pleasure to use in the field.  This will be a must-have book for all serious butterfly enthusiasts (watchers, rearers, and collectors) in Western Canada and in the Northern Tier of States in the US.
