Butterflies are very sensitive insects for climate change, environmental pollution. Butterflies are model for most of the studies which focuses on the effect of climate change on the species richness, change in abundance, species distribution, population size; it is also because of butterflies are umbrella species, the conservation programme of butterflies will surely help to conserve other species from plants to microscopic organisms. In this study an attempt was made to evaluate the change in butterfly population dynamics through different seasons of the year. According to the observation made during research period it is clear that species richness was highest from August to November (Monsoon and Early Monsoon) followed by Winter. Lowest were in Hot Summer and Summer that is from February to May. This study is an example for the impact of climate change on the diversity of butterflies from semi-arid geographical region of India; revealed the impact of climate on the species composition, species richness and abundance of butterflies. Such studies are very much important to shows that the effects of climate change whether it is natural or human induced changes the species composit
