I need some advice. Looking for a book on Insects of Southern Africa. Has to be English of course, has to make id of critters a breeze, if possible, photographs. Must be currently in print. Any suggestions?

Hi Guinea Pig

I very recently found one :) So have a look out for it. It's pretty good.

Field Guide to Insects Of South Africa by Mike Picker Charles Griffiths and Alan Weaving It's a comprehensive guide to African insects with full colour photos and is published by Struik

No need to hunt ... just ask Senyetse where he stays and go and visit him one night!
