Unidentified Leaf Mines
Leafminers of North AmericaBy Charley Eiseman
This thoroughly illustrated book compiles information from about 1000 literature sources, plus BugGuide submissions and my own observations, to present keys to the leaf mines found on each plant genus in North America. Species accounts (biology, hosts, and distribution) are given for each insect species, and the first 383 pages are devoted to introducing leafminers (biology, terminology, rearing) and providing overviews of each group of leaf-mining insects as well as their parasitoids and predators (including photos of adults).
Praying Mantises of the United States and CanadaBy Kris Anderson
Independently published, 2018
This peer reviewed text includes a dichotomous key to all 15 genera of Mantodea found in the U.S. and Canada.

One new genus is established along with several taxonomic revisions and clarifications. Species treatments include taxonomic illustrations, precise morphological descriptions, accurate morphometry, complete natural history documentation, exhaustive historical literature review, and detailed distribution range maps.
