New booklet on Los Angeles syrphids
Flower flies of Los Angeles County, by B. Brown, J. Hogue, and F. C. Thompson. 2011, 28 pages, color photos throughout.

This booklet discusses the behavior of about 20 flower flies (Syrphidae) commonly found in Southern California gardens and parks. It contains interesting information about these flies along with excellent close-up photos.

The booklet is designed to bring the results of the authors' study and survey of Los Angeles flower flies to a wide-ranging audience, and to document the incredible beauty of these diminutive but important creatures. Paperback; 5-1/2 x 8-1/4
