The Carabidae: Ground Beetles of Britain & Ireland

Pictorial Card Covers 7 x 10 inches tall, 250 Pages, lavishly illustrated with colour plates and B&W illustrated keys throughout. The Carabidae (ground beetles) are a cosmopolitan family, with an estimated 40,000 species worldwide. The prime purpose of this book is to enable the reliable identification of the adults of the 350 species of Carabids that occur in Britain and Ireland. Fully illustrated keys to subfamilies, tribes, genera and species are provided. Notes are provided for each species to enable the user to confirm (or otherwise) identification.
Creased covers otherwise brand new. A damaged copy replaced by the publisher, so free to first request. If you can afford a new copy please leave this to someone with less cash and thus unable to buy a copy.

Paul, I'd love a copy, but you did say that if you can afford it yourself leave it for those that aren't in a position to buy one.

Although I am a little worried I might get addicted to ground beetles as well as micros/leafmines etc.- there are after all only so many hours in the day ;-)
