This comprehensive work includes all 247 species of butterflies in Sri Lanka. The adults of both sexes are illustrated with colour photographs taken in the field. The immature stages are also illustrated where the life history is known.

Chapters cover the history of the study of butterflies in Sri Lanka and their biogeography, classification, morphology, distribution, and conservation. Species accounts include identification, similar species, status, distribution, habitat, adult behaviour, immature stages, larval food plants, and, for threatened species, conservation concerns. Supplementary material includes a species list with the common name, scientific name and authorities, endemic status, and distribution by climatic zone, as well as a list of larval food plants and adult nectar sources.
