There are three indices of butterflies on the website.
     Scientific names (taxonomic order) (this page)
     Scientific names (alphabetical) (bottom of the Home Page)
     English names (alphabetical)
 

The names and order are (mostly) as presented in Tom Tolman's excellent field guide Butterflies of Britain and Europe by Collins (1997), with a few additions/ modifications that are explained in the text.

I've not tried to keep up with all the taxonomic changes as the subject is so fluid. Part of the problem is that not everyone agrees with the various taxonomic status decisions made so a comprehensive, inclusive and up to date list isn't going to be possible. That's why I stick (mainly) to the available field guides (notably Tolman 1997) as they are the readily accessible and because they are printed they are fixed for all time!
