White-letter Hairstreak - the national situation

Two important books have been published - The Millennium Atlas of Butterflies in Britain & Ireland, covering the recording period of 1995 to 1999 and including historic records was published in 2001 - and in 2006, The State of Butterflies in Britain and Ireland, covering the period 2000-2004.

In 2010 Butterfly Conservation published an Atlas of Butterflies in Britain and Ireland which covered the period 2005-2009. The White-letter Hairstreak map shows many of our records.

These three maps now show quite clearly the known distribution of the White-letter Hairstreak in the UK since record keeping began.

1995-2009 distribution


The maps do not reproduce well on a webpage at low resolution but can be viewed and expanded side by side in pdf format.
