"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
