New Book: Butterflies and Moths of Curaçao, Aruba and Bonaire 


Butterflies and Moths of Curaçao, Aruba and Bonaire by A. Debrot and J. Miller, was published earlier this month (July 2017) by Carib Publishing. It centers on the wide variety of butterflies and moths of the Leeward Dutch Antilles (also known as the ABC islands—Aruba Bonaire, and Curaçao) and, by extension, many that are also found in the wider Caribbean region.

Description: The Leeward Dutch Antilles are best known for their arid landscapes of picturesque cacti, rugged rock formations and rich coral reefs. To this, we can now add the surprisingly diverse and colorful butterfly fauna.

With full color photographs of 78 species of butterflies and moths, Butterflies and moths of Curaçao, Aruba and Bonaire provides extensive coverage of the species most commonly encountered in the Dutch ABC; three islands which lie basking in the breezy southern Caribbean Sea. Practically all species covered range more widely throughout the West Indies and South America. In addition to being of interest to West Indian conservationists and scientists, the book will be of great general interest to island residents and visitors.
