 List of European Butterfly Species

Provencal Short Tailed Blue (Everes alcetas) ęBarbara Higginbotham

The Excel spreadsheet below provides a list of all the European butterfly species. It is based on the Butterfly Conservation Europe Taxonomy Committee / IUCN Redlist definitive species list for Europe up to the Urals and including Madeira and the Azores, as first published in 2010.

EIG has endeavoured to add the commonly accepted English vernacular names to the spreadsheet. Any suggestions for species without English names should be forwarded to EIG.

The spreadsheet represents the current taxonomic state of butterflies but on-going research will no doubt introduce changes and EIG will attempt to keep the spreadsheet updated.
