Just published: The Dynastine Scarab Beetles of Mexico, Guatemala, and  

(Apologies for cross posting)

The 198 species of dynastine scarab beetles that occur in Mexico,  
Guatemala, and Belize are comprehensively reviewed. Keys in English  
and Spanish, descriptions, geographic and temporal distributions,  
notes on natural history, 885 numbered illustrations, numerous other  
illustrations, and maps are provided for all species. Also included  
are synopses of the habitats in each of the three countries and higher- 
level taxa, a tabular review of all the Dynastinae occurring in  
Mesoamerica, a glossary, a species checklist, and extensive  
references. The book is hard bound, 666 pages, and in color.

For ordering information see:

I regret that the book weighs almost 2 k, and so overseas postage is  
expensive; we have no control over this. If overseas colleagues know  
of someone traveling to the States who might hand carry a volume for  
you, consider this as an option.

Now, on to the next volume in the same format: The Dynastine Scarabs  
of the West Indies!
