This comprehensive field guide to tiger beetles in Florida and the eastern United States is the result of hours of intensive fieldwork. Each species entry includes colour photographs of living specimens and habitats by Paul Choate, biological notes, maps and morphological criteria.
There are now three essentials for any beetle enthusiast's trip to Florida: sun tan lotion, mosquito dope, and this book! - Gary Dunn, author of The Insect Identification Guide; "Lavishly illustrated, authoritatively well-written... the finest single-state guide to tiger beetles that is currently available, and the chapter on Florida's geologic history as it relates to the tiger beetles is absolutely tantalizing." - Ronald L. Huber, cofounder and editor of Cicindela
