PREFACE

The new Maps 3.3″ (of distribution of species) are presented and the new Chart 4.15″ (as in the page 736 of the second edition of the book ΤΗΕ BUTTERFLIES OF GREECE, 2009).

The new Maps are made with coordinates in ETRS89, after in total 461253 records for the butterflies of Greece (till 31 ΧΙΙ 2021) for the 1657 investigated localities 10X10 km (compare to 265134 records, in 2008). For all species ΑΟΟ (Area Of Occupancy 1X1 km and 2X2 km) is noted on Maps 3.3″ in Km2.

This increase in records is made after personal investigations (from 2008-2023) and mainly after the many published papers in entomological magazines and the generous offer from many recorders (listed below) from Greece and abroad, who send comments and records for the buttertlies of Greece. This update is dedicated to all those who offer their comments and send and trust to me their records; to all I express my gratitude.

Α list with a number of sites (from which records for the butterflies of Greece were obtained) is presented; the existence of a group in Facebook for the Buttertlies and Moths of Greece and Cyprus is also noted (with 3952 members at 7 ΧΙΙ 2022) in

http://www.facebook.com/groups/420659294633829/    .

Now there are 236 species in Greece; see in Wiemers et al (2018) in https://doi.org/10.3897/zookeys.811.28712  and in Zhang et al (2020) in  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8018707/

Additional comments are noted in some of the pages; also there are Links to web pages with photos and details of the wings, suggested for a correct identification from photos.
