Given below is a brief history of the Butterflies of India web versions. The website version numbers were haphazard in the beginning since we forgot to update the version numbers while we were busy developing and expanding the website. However, from the late 2015 we are following stricter guidelines in maintaining web version numbers so that the website users can cite the proper version in their scientific papers and other writings. The rule of thumb is that we will update website versions by 0.01 every time we upload new 1,000 reference images, and update versions by 0.1 when we cross every 100th species page or early stages. We will update versions by 1 when there are major developments in the website structure or content. So far, the progress has been as follows:

2017/04/01v. 2.28: Crossed 35,000 reference images.
2017/01/01v. 2.27: Crossed 34,000 reference images.
