This database contains 30.630 distribution records for butterfly species found in Slovenia from research projects undertaken by the Institute from 1995 to date.

These updates provide new areas or range limits for 14 species, the presence of 71 species in areas the Atlas designated as "white spots", new information on 3 species with very limited distribution in Slovenia, and additional corroboration for distribution of 27 species that the Atlas covered.
