Book Description Kota Kinabalu, 2003. Cloth. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Well illustrated in colour, and with 25 fine watercolour plates, large 8vo, pp x, 195, a very good copy in dust wrapper. [With 275 named species so far recorded and doubtless many more yet to be discovered, Borneo has one of the richest and most exciting dragonfly faunas in the world. More than 40% of species occur nowhere else, making it the most distinctive sub-region of Sundaland. It is home to such spectacular species as Tetracanthagyna plagiata, the heaviest of all dragonflies, many beautiful picture-winged chlorocyphids and euphaeids, and high-altitude endemics such as Matronoides cyaneipennis restricted to Mount Kinabalu and nearby mountains. This, the first guide to Borneo’s dragonflies, is also the most comprehensively illustrated account of any large tropical dragonfly fauna yet published. Species are figured by photographs, generally taken in nature, and half-wing coloured drawings. Many are figured by both methods. About 60% of known species are shown, including almost all the distinctive and common species likely to be encountered by a casual visitor. Particular attention is given to the identification of the common but difficult medium-sized red dragonflies of which there are several. The text augments the illustrations and provides useful information on biology. Introductory chapters discuss structure and general biology, ecology and conservation, faunistics and biogeography and collecting techniques and photography. There is a complete and up to date checklist. Illustrated keys to families of adults give the reader an understanding of the structures used in classifying dragonflies and augment the usefulness of the illustrations of entire insects. Main larval forms are shown. This book will be useful not just in Borneo, but also in neighbouring parts of south-east Asia.]. Bookseller Inventory # 003484
