About this book

Contains 440 distribution maps and 7 composite maps for the 448 species of aculeate Hymenoptera recorded from Kent plotted from a database of approximately 55,000 records. All families are covered apart from the Dryinidae, Embolemidae and Bethylidae (an additional 22 species) for which a brief resume is given. The book developed as a result of the author acting as the county referee for this group of insects and compiling the first proper electronic database for Kent's aculeate Hymenoptera.

The author is a gifted artist. Numerous illustrations of bees and wasps drawn by the author especially for the book are included and these are all of a very high standard. These together with a scattering of colour photographs add strength to the species accounts.
