  • This is the first fully illustrated guide to all 203 dragonfly (including damselfly) species of Japan. Every species is generously illustrated with fully-colored photographs, color distribution maps, and detailed line drawings to aid species identification. Key features for identification, distribution, seasons of occurrence, habitats, similar species, and current taxonomic status based on molecular phylogeny is described for every species. Compact book size and user-friendly design make it the only guide you need in the field. This book will be one of the essential references for anyone who is interested in dragonflies in Japan.

    "Dragonflies, including damselflies, are one of the most popular and familiar insects in Japan. Ancient Japanese people called their country “Akitsu Shima” which means “dragonfly's island”, and modern Japanese people regard the song “Aka tombo” (red dragonflies = Sympetrum) as a symbol of autumn. This book addresses all 203 dragonfly species recorded in Japan, and provides high quality photographs with behavioral and ecological comments, descriptions of distinctive features with precise illustrations useful for species identification, seasons of occurrence, detailed distribution maps and current taxonomic status of all species. We hope that this book is an essential reference for anyone who is interested in dragonflies in Japan.” (from Preface)
