CSIRO Publishing, October, 2013. 576 pages, Quarto, hardcover, colour and black and white photographs, black and white illustrations, line drawings.
The first in what will be a three-volume series presenting a comprehensive treatment of the beetles of Australia, a relatively under-studied fauna including many unusual and unique lineages found nowhere else in the world. This first volume updates and expands Lawrence and Britton’s out-of-print Australian beetles, with improved keys to all beetle families found in Australia, expanded family diagnoses as well as modern classification and additional illustrations. The introduction to beetle morphology and anatomical terms clarify characters and terminology used in the keys; few other resources for beetle identification include such a detailed morphological background.
