British Pyralid Moths - A Guide to their Identification

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This hardcover book is in good condition overall. The cover of the book has a gilded title on the spine and includes the original dust jacket. The cover has some noticeable markings on front and back, as well some slight wear to the corners. The jacket, which has not been price cut, has some slight fraying along the edges and corners. Inside, the pages of the book are in good condition overall and are without major issue.

No other book in print covers the British species of the family Pyralidae, which includes such familiar species as the Mother of Pearl, the China-marks and the Grass Moths. All 208 species are clearly described in the text and all are illustrated photographically in the 272 figures on the colour plates, showing sexual dimorphism and different colour forms. The text gives a concise description of each species and its more striking races or forms, aided, where necessary, by line-drawings. Information is included on life histories, habits, seasonal occurrence, geographical distribution and host-plants. There is also a check list of the British Pyralidae.
