Larvae of Insects
By Alvah Peterson
Edwards Brothers, Ann Arbor, Michigan, 1948
Cite: 607174 with citation markup [cite:607174]
Two Volume Set
Part I is subtitled "Lepidoptera and Hymenoptera"
Part II is subtitled "Coleoptera, Diptera, Neuroptera, Siphonaptera, Mecoptera, Trichoptera".

The publication year refers to the first edition. These volumes are primarily an identification guide with keys, drawings, descriptions, and bibliographies. Part I, though, contains some brief introductory material on equipment and methods for collecting, killing, dissecting, and preserving insect larvae that I found interesting.

Both volumes are now available to "borrow" and read online free at Internet Archive:

Wow!
I recently bought the 2 volume set at Half Price Books here in San Marcos, TX. The artwork is inspiring. I just couldn't pass up such a bargain.
