The guide helps the reader familiarise themselves with the approximately 125 genera and 338 species of the Cicindelidae family of beetles structured according to Jürgen Wiesner.
One or more representative species of each tribe is illustrated by large photos, referencing sex, size, genus and species. Species are represented in a top view as well as details of mandibles, a side view, and a close-up of pronotum and scutellum. For species diversity, the guide is supplemented by additional species with a classic top view, and alternatively, rare specimens from museums are represented. Illustrations of some of the species depicted here have never been previously published.
This unique visual guide aims to introduce these amazing predators from the world of insects to all nature enthusiasts. It is one of the predatory groups of insects that fascinates thousands of people around the world and is very attractive to photographers and nature observers. The book serves as a source of illustrated identification and, due to its topicality and species diversity, is useful for professional and amateur entomologists, as well as for scientists.
