[In Russian; original title: Spravochnik-opredelitel' karantinnykh i drugikh opasnykh vreditelei syr'ya, produktov zapasa i posevnogo materiala]

The title is rather deceptive, as the illustrated keys cover only two insect orders (no mites, etc.), i.e. 400+ beetle species and ~160 spp. of lepidopteran larvae associated with stored products and seed worldwide, incl. many obscure species of no commercial relevance at all. Despite the outdated taxonomy, the book is helpful in providing valuable illustrations borrowed from authoritative sources, distribution and habitat/product data not found online elsewhere, and info on many beetle spp. not covered in(1).
