Although some systematics info is dated (Sharonowski et al. (1) is the most recent phylogenetic update of the group as of this writing), contains comprehensive biological and taxonomic information, keys, and information on the biodiversity of the various groups, as well as habitus and wing diagrams, and SEM photographs of various morphological features helpful for identification. Very high quality work.
