7 Arrow, Gilbert J. Horned Beetles - a study of the fantastic in nature.
Kota Kinabalu 2005 9838121061 / 9789838121064 
15 plain photographic plates, pp viii, 182, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [A welcome reprint of the very scarce 1951 original. Gilbert Arrow (1873-1948) published over 100 papers on Scarabaeoids during his career. He is probably best known for his four-volume work on Lamellicorns in the Fauna of British India series and this synoptic book on Horned Beetles. Although trained as an architect, he gave this up after five years to obtain a position on the staff of the Department of Zoology of the British Museum of Natural History in London in 1896. From this time on until his death, he devoted himself to the study of beetles, especially scarabs. He retired in 1938 at the mandatory age of 65, but continued to do volunteer work in the museum until a few weeks before his death. His work for the museum, especially during the war years, was invaluable, and he was considered imperturbable, even when badly cut by flying glass after a flying bomb fell outside the museum. His very broad range of scarab papers was foundational for many of today’s studies.]

12 Benton, Ted Bumblebees - the Natural History and Identification of the Species Found in Britain. (New Naturalist 98)
London Collins 2006 0007174500 / 9780007174508 First Edition Cloth Good As New 
FIRST EDITION. Well illustrated hardback, 8vo, pp xii, 580, a slightly faulty copy in dustwrapper, protected in a removable plastic cover. This is actually a NEW copy, but the original publisher's shrinkwrap was slightly tight - this has lead to the faintest of "leans" to the book. This is almost imperceptable. More importantly there is a production fault to the head of pages 273-276 where the pages are cut and creased over slightly. There is no loss of text. There is a very faint impression of the paper fold on page 277/8. [An excellent monograph, the result of fifteen years of field studies. This group of relatively large, colourful and familiar insects are a very popular subject of study because their behaviour can be observed without the use of elaborate equipment, enabling amateur and experienced entomologists alike to get close to these colourful and social creatures. Unlike honey bees, bumblebees work on plants with no nectar, and play a crucial role in the pollination of flowers and vegetables. The farming industry relies heavily on these efficient pollinators: few, if any bean flowers, for example, would set pods unless they were pollinated by bumblebees, and many apple, pear and plum trees rely on visits for a bountiful harvest. Ted Benton combines 15 years of his own field studies of the species with all the latest research and findings, to provide a detailed and comprehensive account of the lives of the 25 species of bumblebee found throughout the UK, which includes: acclaimed colour photographs of the sexes and castes of all species and habitats. ]

A Guide to Lanternflies of Borneo, Bosuang, Steven; Audibert, Cedric; Porion, Thierry & Chan, C.L.
14 Bosuang, Steven; Audibert, Cedric; Porion, Thierry & Chan, C.L. A Guide to Lanternflies of Borneo
Kota Kinabalu 2017 9838121746 / 9789838121743 First Edition Pictorial laminated boards New New 
Very well illustrated, small slim octavo, pp (6), 120, a very good new copy in dustwrapper. [The lanternflies are strikingly attractive insects belonging to the bug family Fulgoridae, adorned with bizarre ornamentation and colours. Surprisingly, although there is a great deal of interest in collecting lanternflies worldwide, there is no general book published on these amazing insects until now. Borneo - one of the world’s most exciting biodiversity hotspots - is renowned for its spectacular species richness residing in evergreen tropical rain forests, home also to a myriad of insects, including the lanternflies. Thus far, just 34 taxa are known from Borneo which are classified in four subfamilies, viz., Lystrinae, Amyclinae, Aphaeninae and Fulgorinae. There are too few specialists working on lanternflies, and many more new species are expected to be discovered and described in the future, so this Guide draws attention to these fascinating insects in a timely way. Pyrops, the largest genus in the Fulgorinae in Borneo, is represented by 10 taxa (9 species and a subspecies), all having a forward and upwardly curving, protuberance on the head that also characterises the genera Datu, Saiva and Zanna (each with a solitary species known); Saiva karimbujangi and Egregia have only very short head processes. On the other hand, the genera Polydictya (7 spp.), Scamandra (6 spp.) and Penthicodes (4 spp.) do not have such a process, and Prolepta ferocula and Samsana chersonesia borneana in subfamily Amyclinae have unusually thin head processes. In particular, our knowledge of the ecology of these insects is rather wanting. The Bornean lanternflies are found throughout the year although never as abundantly as moths and beetles. They are weak flyers and are active during the day, although at night many species are attracted to light. They are generally covered by white wax on their wings and abdomen, have sucking mouthparts and derive nutrition from the phloem of plants. Little is known of their host specificity but it is generally believed that they are non host-specific, although along north Borneo’s Kinabatangan River, they have often been found on Mata Kuching fruit trees (Dimocarpus longan ssp. malesianus). Much lanternfly mystery awaits the keen enthusiast.]

A Guide to the Beetles of Borneo, Bosuang, Steven; Chung, Arthur Y.C. &  Chan, C.L.
15 Bosuang, Steven; Chung, Arthur Y.C. & Chan, C.L. A Guide to the Beetles of Borneo
Kota Kinabalu 2017 983812172X / 9789838121729 First Edition Pictorial laminated boards New New 
Well illustrated, octavo, pp (6), 244, pictorial lamoinated boards, a very good new copy in dustwrapper. [Beetles are certainly important to study if we are to understand the diversity and ecology of insect fauna in various tropical habitats. Although somewhat diverse and ubiquitous in terrestrial habitats, they are less commonly encountered than moths, butterflies and ants. This is mainly because more than 95% of beetles are less than a centimetre long and they are often not found in swarms as one species like ants. Many are only active at night. Borneo’s mesmerising natural biodiversity is made up of very many species, including beetles, and very many are also endemic or confined to this island. It follows that it is virtually impossible to attempt including all beetles in the present account. This pictorial guide covers more than 150 beetle species, including some of the most captivating or even inspiring forms known. To foster better awareness and showcase the high diversity of tropical beetles, we feature some large and interesting beetles as well as others commonly encountered in Borneo. More than a third of those featured in this book are endemic to Borneo.]

Phasmids of Borneo, Bragg, Philip E.
16 Bragg, Philip E. Phasmids of Borneo
Kota Kinabalu 2001 9838120278 / 9789838120272 Cloth New New 
NEW. Well illus with over 800 line drawings, large very thick 8vo, pp xii, 772, a very good copy in dustwrapper. Book weighs 3 kilos when packed, so extra postage will be required. [With more than 10% of the world's species found there, Borneo is arguably the best place to study stick insects. Although stick insects, or phasmids, include the largest insects known, they are mostly nocturnal and easily overlooked. In 1838, Hermann Burmeister described the first stick insect from Borneo. During the next 100 years, almost 300 species more were recorded, making the island the richest territory for stick insects in the world. There was then a gap of almost 50 years when no new species were recorded from Borneo. However, during the last decade 53 new species have been described: 48 by the author of this book, including 29 which are described here for the first time. This is the first book to deal specifically with the phasmids of Borneo. With over 800 line illustrations and 24 colour photographs of stick insects and their eggs, it contains more illustrations than any book ever published on phasmids. With keys for the identification of species in all the smaller subfamilies, it is invaluable to anyone interested in the identification of this group of Bornean insects. In addition, the book includes a world-wide check list of phasmid genera with all the type species listed.]
