Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Updating Arnett's 1960 treatment of the subject titled The Beetles of the United States: A Manual for Identification, this volume covers those families of beetles not covered in the first edition (covering Archostemata, Myxophaga, Adephaga, and Polyphaga: Staphyliniformia). Provided are general features for quick identification and a description of the family as a whole for quick identity checks. Includes dichotomous keys permitting the identification of all genera of beetles occurring in the US and Canada. Each family is described, with separate paragraphs for the head, thorax, abdomen, genitalia, eggs, larvae, and pupae. B&w line drawings, a few photos, and 15 color plates. For professional and amateur coleopterists, general entomologists, and naturalists. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
