About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Portuguese

This profusely illustrated book will allow the identification of all described species of damselflies (Zygoptera) thus far known to occur in Brazil. With more than 300 species distributed among ten families, Brazil contains one of the most species-rich damselfly assemblages in the world. This first volume covers nine of the ten families known from Brazil.
The book begins with an introductory chapter containing illustrations of all diagnostic characters, collection, preservation techniques, and identification keys for families and genera. Each species account includes original literature citation, synonymies, references to described larvae, and diagnostic illustrations, usually of the caudal appendages and/or wing scans. The last chapter includes an extensive, up-to-date bibliography and glossary. More than 1000 diagnostic illustrations (of which almost 300 are original) for the 153 species of non-Coenagrionidae species are included which should make identification of the damselfly fauna of Brazil considerably easier than was previously possible.
