About this book

This publication combines the original volume 1 on dragonflies and volume 2 on damselflies, now both out of print.

This field guide aids the identification of dragonfly and damselfly larvae and exuviae without the need for keys. It is fully illustrated with close-up colour photographs of all the key distinguishing features. It includes information on where to find larvae and exuviae and emergence periods for each species. In this new volume, two new species, dainty damselfly Coenagrion scitulum and Southern migrant hawker Aeshna affinis, have been added. A new appendix for willow emerald Lestes viridis shows extra features on the exuvia and the scars left by ovipositing females. There have also been revisions to other pieces of text, but the overall format of this book matches the earlier field guides.
