The leaf beetles of Alabama

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.

Catalog of Leaf Beetles of America North of Mexico
By Ed Riley, Shawn Clark, and Terry Seeno
Coleopterists Society, 2003
I saw this on Bioquip's new publication page. I do not see this listed on amazon.com. Spiral-bound, 290 pages, ncludes CD. Bioquip has it for $60. What looks like my Passionflower-loving friend, Disonycha discoidea appeart to be pictured on the cover. It is not clear that there are other illustrations--this is apparently an annotated checklist, not a field guide or identification manual.

Published by the Coleopterists Society.
