This annotated and referenced checklist of the larval host plants and other hosts of Indian butterflies is based on Nitin et al. (2018. Journal of Threatened Taxa, 10:11495–11550; and uploaded on this website on 2018/04/17). It is continually updated as new records are contributed, or missing hosts are pointed out to us. It is arranged alphabetically by family, subfamily, tribe and genus names for easy reference. The authors of Nitin et al. are currently listed as authors. Contributors who contribute individual records will be given as a reference for those records, and people who contribute in a major way, such as by contributing new records on an order of dozens of records or other kinds of large dataset, will be added as authors of the entire page at the bottom of this page. So please contribute to this growing and continually updated, very valuable database.
