Flower Flies of Minnesota - Retail
Not unlike the wealth of wildflowers which they help to pollinate, the flower flies display a rich variety of colors and forms from tiny ant-sized flies to large, brightly-colored mimics of wasps and hornets. For far too long, this colorful group of insects has been neglect. This new field guide corrects this oversight, revealing the marvelous diversity and natural history of these beneficial insects.
In addition to descriptions and color photographs for 138 species, included in the guide are keys to several complicated genera and a complete checklist for all the recorded species known to Minnesota. Learning about the common but commonly-overlooked flower flies in this richly illustrated book may, quite possibly, change your view of flies forever.
