The Royal Entomological Society Book of British Insects
The only modern systematic account of all 558 families of British insects, covering not just the large and familiar groups that are included in popular books, but also the smallest and least known. All of the 6,000 genera of British insects are listed and indexed, along with all the family names and higher groups.
There is a summary of the classification, biology and economic importance of each family together with further references for detailed identification. All species currently subject to legal protection in the United Kingdom are also listed.
