Harde, K.W., 1998
A Field Guide in Colour to Beetles
Introductory chapters cover anatomy, development, ecology, beetles and man, etc.
The identification section begins with a guide to families using line drawings of typical members. This is followed by short species accounts for selected species; these are illustrated with good-sized paintings on the opposite page. The final plate covers bark beetle borings.
Translated from a German work; the English editor was P. M. Hammond.
Apparently a re-issue of the 1984 Octopus book.
||Illustrates representatives of most families and genera.
||Right hand pages filled with good colour paintings by F Severa.
||With x8 or x10 hand lens (also useful to examine under a Stereo Microscope).
