Butterfly - watching Holidays
Ghana
September 2012 - updated species list 20 Feb 2013
A non-profit small group butterfly watching holiday in Ghana, led by Adrian Hoskins in conjunction with local guides.

Photos and descriptions of species seen in Ghana can be found on the Butterflies of Africa pages.

The table below lists all the species photographed by Adrian Hoskins, Emily Halsey and Peter Bygate at the 5 sites visited. All identifications are by Adrian Hoskins using Hecq's 'Euphaedra' and Larsen's 'Butterflies of West Africa'. In the case of one or two difficult species my identifications were verified personally by Torben Larsen to whom I express my thanks.
