This volume provides keys for the identification of the known larvae of Carabidae (ground beetles) of Fennoscandia and Denmark. It is partly based on a manuscript by the late S.G. Larsson, and is supplementary to the two volumes in this series by C.H. Lindroth on adult Carabidae.After sections outlining the features, biology and study of carabid larvae, the bulk of the volume consists of keys and individual descriptions of all the species whose larvae are known. The book is profusely illustrated with nearly 600 figures.The volume will be invaluable to all who need to identify carabid larvae from Northern Europe, and provides the only complete and detailed text, including specific descriptions, of the larvae of this important group of beetles.
