The Complete Field Guide to Dragonflies of Australia (G. Theischinger & J. Hawking)
A photographic field guide to the 324 species found in Australia. Some of the photographs of of dead specimens that have clearly been “collected” in teh standard paper envelope that odonatologists tend to use. These look of somewhat limited use when it comes to identifying the live creatures but the photos of live critters look fine. There are line drawings of critical features to suplement the photos. I have not yet had a chance to use this publication. Soon, I hope.
