The leaf beetles of Alabama
By Edward Balsbaugh and Kirby Hays
Agricultural Experiment Station, Auburn University, 1972
Cite: 8239
Bulletin #441 of Auburn University Agricultural Experiment Station.

I found this at a used bookstore. It is a technical work, with extensive keys and descriptions. Accounts includes host plant information if known--very helpful. Has about 30 figures of leaf beetles: black-and-white photographs and a few scratchboard illustrations. Has an extensive reference list.
