The European Red List is a review of the conservation status of c. 6,000 European species (dragonflies, butterflies, freshwater fishes, reptiles, amphibians, mammals and selected groups of beetles, molluscs, and vascular plants) according to IUCN regional Red Listing guidelines. It identifies those species that are threatened
with extinction at the regional level – in order that appropriate conservation action can be taken to improve their status. This Red List publication summarises results
for European Butterflies.
