About this book

In this fully revised edition of A Guide to the Dragonflies & Damselflies of South Africa, all 164 species known to occur in South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland are described and illustrated, grouped according to family (six dragonfly and six damselfly families). The species entries feature scans of live insects (close-up and side-view images) and photographs of specimens in their natural environment and showing key behaviours. Detailed descriptions focus on size, identifying features and occurrence. An introductory chapter unpacks the life cycle, behaviour, biology and breeding of this fascinating group of insects.

Presented in a classic field guide format, this revised edition now also features:
- Expanded annotations to all illustrations, highlighting diagnostic features to ensure accurate identification
- New distribution maps
- Additional colour plates and photographs

Beautifully presented, informative and authoritative, A Guide to the Dragonflies & Damselflies of South Africa will appeal to anyone with an interest in South Africa's insect life, and to nature lovers in general.
