This AIDGAP identification guide covers all the families of British beetles.

Over 4000 different species of beetles occur in Britain. Their huge diversity in form, behaviour and ecology make them a daunting group for those attempting beetle identification for the first time. To help overcome these barriers for the non-specialist, complex terminology, obscure characters and the need for expensive equipment has been avoided. Ecological notes are included, and the extensive bibliography will direct the reader to species identification if required.

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
