About this book

The Pocket Guide to the Insects of Costa Rica reveals the sheer number and diversity of insects and arthropods of the tropics. Every square meter of rainforest and cloud forest in Costa Rica offers up multitudes of gemlike tiny creatures with enough wonders to keep an entomologist busy for a lifetime. But given that Costa Rica is home to potentially more than 250,000 species – the majority of which have yet to be named – where to begin?

This Pocket Guide helps orient those new to the insect world, featuring the species that one would most likely encounter on a walk through the forests of Costa Rica. Individual species accounts offer key physical characteristics, along with fascinating natural history information, while range maps offer further clues to help identify the insect that has just landed on your trail way. Finally, there are the stunning photos – a happy reminder of your time spent in the wilds of Costa Rica.

"With eye-popping photos and language that is appropriate for the general reader, this is the insect book I wish I had had when I was starting out. A must-have for every tropical traveler; make sure to bring it along on your next walk through the rainforest. Hanson, Nishida, and Solís have really knocked it out of the park with this one!"
– Scott R. Shaw, author of Planet of the Bugs

"An informative and beautifully illustrated introduction to Costa Rica's exceptional insect fauna, this book will fit equally well in your backpack and on your bookshelf. A great resource for anyone interested in insects and in exploring the natural history of this biodiverse country."
