Pacific Northwest Insects, by Merrill Peterson, Published by Seattle Audubon Society 2018
I shan’t give a detailed critical review here (I haven’t read it yet!), but suffice to say that this is a superb book, which anyone who is interested in the terrestrial arthropods of our area will want to have.
I say “arthropods” because, in spite of the title “Insects”, it is not restricted to insects, but it covers all Classes and Orders (and probably most Families – I haven’t checked in detail) of terrestrial arthropods in the Pacific Northwest, including Vancouver Island.
This book is going to be a huge help in identification. It has my highest recommendation.
