About this book

The most complete photographic field guide to hoverflies of Britain and North-west Europe ever written.

An essential part of our ecosystems, hoverflies are the second most important pollinators after bees but sadly, more than a third of all European species are now under threat of extinction. Written by two leading experts, Hoverflies of Britain and North-west Europe is the first and only photographic field guide to cover all 400 hoverfly species occurring in Britain and neighbouring countries in such detail.

Each species account contains a description, population status, ecology and habitat, an up-to-date map of its distribution across North-western Europe, a flight time diagram and guidance on differentiating similar species. There are also detailed illustrations and stunning full-colour macro photographs in each account, showing key features of the species to aid accurate identification.

This is the ultimate photographic field guide to hoverflies, and a perfect introduction into the world of these important pollinators, both for amateur and expert entomologists alike.

  • Excellent book for identifying Hoverflies
    By Charles 26 Oct 2023 Written for Paperback
    This is an excellent book for identifying hoverflies, Bot and De Meutter have given you everything you need and certainly not wasted any space. The book starts with a useful key to hoverfly anatomy and a quick genus index. The keys and descriptions are accompanied by amazingly detailed photos of specimens created using focus stacking, and each species account includes photos and descriptions of identifying features and the habitats where the species can be found, as well as time flying and distribution maps.

    I do kind of wish I had bought this as an ebook, as it is a bit big and heavy for me to pop in my pocket on field trips, and I would love to be able to expand the photos, especially the ones that accompany the keys, and maps.
