Synopsis: 15% off in commemoration to the new payoneer service which make me able to receive money from Amazon. This is a two-volume, bilingual (English and Portuguese), work on the damselflies (Zygoptera) of Brazil, and will allow entomologists, aquatic biologists, freshwater ecologists, and persons interested in natural history the means to identify all described species of damselflies (Zygoptera) thus far known to occur in Brazil. With more than 300 species distributed among ten families, Brazil contains one of the most species-rich damselfly assemblages in the world. Volume I covers nine of the ten families known from Brazil, being the volume II dedicated to Coenagrionidae. Both volumes begin with an introductory chapter containing illustrations of all diagnostic characters, collection, preservation techniques, and identification keys for families and genera. Each species account includes original literature citation, synonymies, references to described larvae, and diagnostic illustrations, usually of the caudal appendages and/or wing scans. The last chapter includes an extensive, up-to-date bibliography and glossary. More than 2500 diagnostic illustrations (of which almost 700 are original) for the 307 species included which should make identification of the damselfly fauna of Brazil considerably easier than was previously possible. In the Volume II besides the Coenagrionidae was included 43 color photos of examples from all families, a description of the larva and habits of the poorly-known helicopter damselfly, Mecistogaster asticta, and addition of 11 species of non-coenagrionid species not included in Volume I.
