Guide to the Sphingidae of Serra dos Órgãos, Southeast Brazil
Alan Martin, Alexandre Soares and Jorge Bizarro
R$60.00 (+R$10.00 if mailed) available at REGUA headquarters
The first complete guide to all 110 species of hawkmoth that occur in the Serra dos Órgãos region. For each species there is detailed text that includes taxonomic nomenclature, distribution and flight period, along with key characteristics for identification. With 37 colour plates illustrating all species with dorsal and ventral faces, for both males and females, plus over 120 colour photos showing many of the hawkmoths in their natural resting positions.
Using both the illustrations and the photos and text, any attentive observer, without prior knowledge of the group, will be able to easily identify any of the described species. Many of the species covered have a wide distribution throughout the Neotropics, and this book should therefore appeal not only to those interested in the hawkmoths of Brazil, but also to a much wider audience.
To apply in the UK, please send a cheque for £15.00 (including UK delivery) payable to the “Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest Trust” with your name and address to Alan Martin, Alureds Oast, Northiam, East Sussex, TN31 6JJ, England.
