How good is it for western species?

Well, ya can't hardly beat the price....
226 pages of text, keys 212 species from the United States and Canada, 160 figs., all for $6 plus S&H...

I suspect it's fairly good for the west. I'm not sure, but it might be sans flea beetles (before they were lumped in).

I'll order a copy shortly.

FYI, I'm drafting a page for Texas chrysomelids.
