Volunteers who participate in mapping schemes or regularly observe nature, eventually gain experience on which species can be expected in a given region or biotope. This enables them to actively search for certain species in those biotopes or landscapes. The presence of other species is often helpful to direct searches. Here, we analyse whether these field-based experiences are reflected in the distribution data of all butterflies iin Flanders. We've listed the indicator value of all butterfly species for other species. Finally, butterflies were clustered based on this indicator value into species groupes typical for Flemish regions and biotopes. These indicator values can be a useful tool in mapping projects especially when additional species of other taxonomic groups could be analysed for their indicator value for other species.
