This AIDGAP identification guide covers the adults of most British bugs (Hemiptera) to family level.

Designed for use with unprepared specimens at low magnification, some of the scale insects (Coccoidea) and aphids (Aphidoidea) require more sophisticated techniques, so they are beyond the scope of this guide. However, lists of the characteristics of the main aphid families are given.

AIDGAP produces simple and clearly written identification keys, aimed at non-specialist users from age 16+. The FSC is one of the UK's leading publishers of identification guides, ranging from easy to use fold-out charts through intermediate level AIDGAP guides, to specialist books such as the Synopses of the British Fauna and RES Handbooks.
