About this book

Fully illustrated with lavish close-up photography and detailed artwork, this is a field guide to the Irish dragonflies and damselflies designed primarily for naturalists, photographers and others who want to improve their field identification skills. The aim is to provide the reader with a quick reference guide to the adults of all the resident and migrant species which have been recorded in Ireland since 1980. There are brief texts on aspects such as behaviour, ecology and distribution, and descriptions which highlight the key diagnostic features of each species and the average flight period. The artworks by Richard Lewington on each species page illustrate mature males (occasionally teneral males) and females (not exactly to scale). The adult length and wingspan indicates the average size of the insect from the head to the tip of the abdomen and the typical wingspan.
