Although Hong Kong is famous for its skyscrapers, this city has a rich and unique diversity of dragonflies. Since the first local dragonfly species, including two endemic species, has been recorded in Hong Kong. The dragonflies of Hong Kong opens the door to the understing and identification of these 116 dragonfil species by providing a comprehensive key of adults, and descriptions of their characteristics (larva and both male and female adults), living habits, habitat, update distributional data and data and local status. With its easy-to-read text in Chinese and English and over 400 spectacular photographs, The Dragonflies of Hong Kong is an essential reference for ecologists and anyone interested in these winged jewels of Hong Kong.
