This is a very nice little book. Considering it must cost a couple of quid at least (2 pounds) to send from Italy, this is a bargain! The book has clear, concise and useful information and it is packed full of little photos of the ova / larvae / pupae & adults of Agrodiaetus species. I hope this is the first in a series and not just a one-off, because this is a spunking-good little book and represents some hard work on the part of the author.
It is all so easy to go over the top with a simple subject and end up with a book costing £100. The author has not done this.
If you have even the slightest interest in European Blues, then get this book. [Paul Batty].
