This second edition is completey updated compared to the first edition published in 2000.
This new guide to phytophagous beetles of Europe is devoted to the families Buprestidae, Elateridae, Cleridae and Cerambycidae. A host of species are described and illustrated, to help you recognise and identify almost all the Jewel beetle and Longhorn species you might encounter in Europe, ranging from Portugal and Great Britain to Finland and the Balkans. These include species quite recently described.
Phytophagous Beetles of Europe, Volume 1 is packed with new information and discoveries, enriching the entries on the biology in general and the ethology and ecology of each species in particular, allowing for the many additional host-plants found over the past few years.
Distribution maps, drawn up in line with the most recent publications, feature alongside the descriptions. The new classification adopted is from the Catalogue of Palaearctic Coleoptera, by Löbl and Smetana, published from 2003 to 2013, now used by all entomologists. This resolves many of the problems that stem from working with synonymies.
