Identify A Butterfly
APPLICATION FOR THE RECOGNITION OF BUTTERFLIES OF GREECE by Lazaros Pamperis©
Identify a butterfly! Are you wondering about the identity of a butterfly that you have spotted and photographed on the island? The Greece Butterfly Recognizer System by Lazaros Pamperis is able to identify 235 species of butterflies from Greece with nearly 90% identification accuracy.
The application even distinguishes easily and reliably, between species that look quite similar, based on key characteristics of each species, i.e. Pieris rapae and Pieris brassicae.
You can identify any butterflies from Greece by clicking on the butterfly image or link, uploading your photo, and following the instructions.
It is important to know that the application recognizes ONLY BUTTERFLIES and NOT MOTHS and these only in ADULT STAGE (not caterpillars, pupae, etc). Read carefully the detailed instructions for the correct use of the application, after selecting the butterfly button.
