Butterfly Research Centre in Bhimtal Uttarakhand
Butterfly Research Centre in Bhimtal houses the fourth largest collection of butterflies and moths in Bhimtal, Uttarakhand.
The Butterfly Research Centre, situated on a hill near Bhimtal Lake, houses India’s fourth-largest butterfly and moth reference collection.
The Jones Estate’s collection is housed in a 150-year-old colonial bungalow. Bhimtal has around 240 species of butterflies, out of the approximately 1,300 species found in India (mostly concentrated in the northeastern states).
Bhimtal is unmistakably a butter lover’s paradise. The museum has a stunning collection of butterflies, moths, beetles, spiders, and other insects.
His small but breathtaking collection of butterflies from other continents is particularly impressive, while the local specimens include a whole range of oak butterflies with wings that perfectly mimic oak leaves, aiding in camouflage.
Then there are the unusual butterflies like the owl butterfly, peacock butterfly, and snake butterfly. To say the least, the collection’s size, colour, and variety are astounding. Peter is still conducting research and publishing.
