This guide is the perfect companion for wildlife enthusiasts, professional ecologists, and anyone with an interest in this unique insect family.



  • More than 500 remarkable photographs depict all 69 hoverfly genera and the 164 most commonly seen species in Britain that can be identified by eye or with a magnifying glass

  • Introductory chapters explore hoverfly biology

  • Species accounts highlight key features of each genus and species, including status, behavior, and habitat

  • Maps and phenology charts examine hoverfly distribution

  • A complete list of the 281 hoverfly species recorded in Britain to date with degrees of identification difficulty


Recensione: "Covering those species most likely to be seen means as an introduction this book will be a great starting point, the photographs are great at helping you achieve your identification goals and the short descriptive accompanying text will help even more if you need to compare other species." --Ashley Boelens, Fat photographer


"[W]onderfully informative. . . . [T]he book is billed on the front cover as An introduction to the Hoverflies of Britain. But it's rather better than a simple introduction--in fact it is quite complete, covering each of the 70 genera to occur in Britain and 165 of the commoner species that one is likely to find within our shores, giving the prospective reader more than enough material to go at and thus proving quite brilliant for the mere mortals of hoverfly identification such as me. . . . This particular group of insects has been crying out for a modern and comprehensive field guide of high quality for years, and finally it is here. Go and buy it--it's essential!" --Josh Jones, BirdGuides


"The latest field guild from the excellent Wildguides. . . . Beautifully and clearly laid out." --Charlie Moores, Talking Naturally


"This is an excellent introduction to this attractive group of insects and should inspire many of its readers to investigate them further." --N.P. Wyatt, Entomologist's Monthly Magazine


"I have found these Wild Guides invaluable for ID-ing my insects. . . . This is an ideal gift for anyone who loves their wildlife, they will appreciate the stunning photos in this super detailed field guide." --Gadget Girl Reviews
