Butterflies of Cyprus -

CTO Map (earlier version showing 10 x 10 km grid)

The long-awaited map showing UTM
5 x 5 km squares should now be available from CTO Offices. I have received my FREE copy via the CTO, London office, so I can confirm this map
should be available.

The map does not show grid lines as clearly as I had hoped, but I can email a PDF version of a computer-prepared map which will help with further annotation of the CTO map if required.

NB although this gridded map was produced at my request (to assist with butterfly recording), an instruction appears to have been given to CTO offices in Cyprus that this map is for issue on request only to birders! This is incorrect and persistence may be needed in order to obtain a copy. (But see details of the new REISE KNOW-HOW map below.)

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE NEW CTO MAP MAY BE IDENTIFIED BY THE WORDING: “REVISED MAY 2007 AND: PRINTED BY .... 09 2008”.

REISE KNOW-HOW MAP

This is a very detailed (1:150,000) map showing both
UTM and Lat/Long grids. It is a little cumbersome in use (three horizontal folds and with the island split vertically just east of Larnaka), but the presence of UTM grids far outweighs these disadvantages.



The map is highly recommended and is available from AMAZON.
