About this book

Language: French

This guide is the second volume of a series on Hymenoptera of Europe. The introduction includes 15 pages on the broad types of environment in which sawflies can be observed. A selective list of the species that can be encountered is provided for each environment, along with details on vegetation.

The guide deals with the sawflies of Europe and North Africa, representing just over 1,400 species distributed over 13 families and 180 genera. Dichotomous keys for the purposes of identification are interspersed with 196 illustrative plates which include 2,250 drawings. These drawings illustrate the morphological characteristics used in the keys, and the genitalia, essential for the identification of species of some genera, in particular.

In addition to these drawings, 78 photographic plates with almost 850 images of larvae and imagos in their natural environment or as mounted specimens provide a detailed view of the incredible diversity of sawflies.

Ce guide présente plus de 1400 espèces, réparties dans 13 familles et 180 genres. Leur identification par clés dichotomiques est facilitée par l’insertion dans le texte de 196 planches de figures comportant 2250 dessins. Ces dessins illustrent les caractères morphologiques externes utilisés dans les clés, et surtout les genitalia qui sont indispensables pour l'identification des espèces de certains genres.

En plus de ces dessins, 78 planches de photos, comportant près de 850 clichés de larves et d’imagos dans le milieu naturel ou épinglés, permettent d’avoir une vision d’ensemble de la diversité des Symphytes.
