Dragonflies of Texas is the definitive field guide to these insects. It covers all 160 species
with in situ photographs and detailed anatomical images as needed.
Each species is given a two-page spread that includes photographs of both sexes and known variations when possible, key features, a distribution map, identification, discussion of similar species, status in Texas, habitat, seasonality, and general comments. Many of the groups also have comparative plates that show anatomically distinctive characteristics.
