Seed and leaf beetles

This AIDGAP identification guide covers the adults of all British species of seed and leaf beetles, including flea beetles.

Illustrated keys to the families Chrysomelidae, Orsodacnidae, Bruchidae and Megalopodidae, subfamilies and small families, genera and species are provided.

The chrysomelids include a number of species of popular interest, either because of their attractive metallic coloration or status as pests in farms and gardens. However, for many years there has been no single simple affordable identification guide in English to the species found in Britain and Ireland. This book aims to fill the gap.

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.
