Abstract With the aim of supporting ecological analyses in butterflies, the third most species-rich superfamily of
Lepidoptera, this paper presents the first time-calibrated phylogeny of all 496 extant butterfly species in
Europe, including 18 very localised endemics for which no public DNA sequences had been available previously. It is based on a concatenated alignment of the mitochondrial gene COI and up to eleven nuclear
gene fragments, using Bayesian inferences of phylogeny. To avoid analytical biases that could result from
our region-focussed sampling, our European tree was grafted upon a global genus-level backbone butterfly
phylogeny for analyses. In addition to a consensus tree, the posterior distribution of trees and the fully
concatenated alignment are provided for future analyses. Altogether a complete phylogenetic framework
of European butterflies for use by the ecological and evolutionary communities is presented.
