As the book is enhancing the concept of the first one, you will find there familiar sections such as the hierarchic list of specimens and the main photographic catalogue consisting of 100 beetles.

In the introduction you can read about specifics of the Neotropical region, what is the most suitable time to catch beetles in different regions or see some examples of species variability.

The conclusion of the book is enriched with a few tables showing types from Neotropical region and which can be found in Natural History Museum in London.
For reader’s convenience there is also a useful list of species which are already published in the series. This list will grow up as more volumes are published and could be used to look up specific species in the future.

    Just received the brand new Prionids of the Neotropical region, which is absolutely Stunning, as a Professional Artist my self, the first and this new volume is a work of art, beautifully put together, the photography is more akin to exquisite illustrations rather than photographs and each specimen perfectly displayed.
    My congratulations and eager anticipation for the next volume in this series, very best regards and many thanks for a 2 wonderful books.
