Part of the Pictured Key Nature Series. This one is, as of this writing (2004), out-of-print and hard to find. Very useful, in that it illustrates all families and many genera of hemiptera. Widespread or notable species are described in each genus. Almost 500 illustrations.

(This book should be under Heteroptera--not Pterygota.)

"extremely poor reference for aquatic Heteroptera" --John Epler

Amazon offers one now
but for $319 too much for me!

Don't lose it!
I've been trying in vain to locate a copy of this book on and off for months.
