Butterflies are essential indicators of the health of the environment, and in the past decade or so a number of scientific inventories have been compiled, listing up to 500 species of butterflies in Bangladesh – although it is likely that there are far more in more remote areas which have not yet been documented. Butterflies fill an essential role as pollinators in food production, making them important to the country's economy and to its citizens.
