About this book

Excellent and comprehensive photographic guide to the dragonflies and damselflies of Britain and Ireland. This completely revised second edition covers in detail the identification of all 56 species that have been recorded, as well as seven potential vagrants. It aims to help the Dragonfly-watcher – beginner or expert – to identify any species they encounter.

Its remarkable full colour photographic plates show all you need to identify the adults. There are sections on larval identification, biology, habitats, recording and conservation. The text covers the key identification features of each species during the egg, larval and adult stages, emphasising the differences between similar species, and includes information on behaviour, breeding habitat, population and conservation. Colour distribution maps and charts showing flight period accompany the text for each species.

Fully updated, the second edition contains many new photographs and a comprehensive guide to identifying larvae.
