A new addition to our exciting series of concise field guides. It is the ultimate keep-in-your-pocket guide to Australian bugs. It may be diminutive in size but it punches well above its weight in terms of usefulness, being packed with more than 200 images covering many of the species most likely to be encountered in Australia.

For each of the 175 species accounts there is at least one photograph for identification and a brief written account listing key ID features, ecology and behaviour.

The book covers all of the most common and widespread species likely to be encountered in Australia, including beetles, beetles, ants, butterflies, moths, dragonflies, hoverflies and grasshoppers, along with some of the more unusual species to look out for, such as Golden Stag Beetle, Cairns Birdwing and Hercules Moth.

The easy-to-use layouts and small size make the book ideal for taking on days out or walks in the bush.

It is perfect for beginners or wildlife-watchers of an intermediate level, and also for children as a first book on Australian insects.
