Why does Western Europe have such an odd mixture of species? So many Nymphalids, so few Riodinids, such a limited range of Lycaenids, - and the extraordinary Peacock butterfly? Surely there must be answers to these questions? The film examines the possibilities, in a global perspective.

A Scientific Content Award winner at the Missoula International Wildlife Film Festival, 1998.
