"This paperback revision will be especially helpful to specialists working among the forest of ill-defined and undescribed Ichneumonidae (the most speciose insect family). Luhman adopts a particularly modern presentation: a model for future ichneumonid revisions with good discussions of character analysis and phylogeny supporting his detailed diagnoses and thorough morphological descriptions."
