About this book

The first detailed treatment of over 250 species, the book provides a thorough natural history for each. The guide illustrates nearly all of the Costa Rican species in colour and provides a large sample of detailed line drawings and scanning electron micrographs of rionid early stages for the first time ever. The coverage also makes the book very useful for identifying rionids throughout Mexico, Central America, and substantial portions of South America.
