For any dermatologists desiring to identify an insect, this book is the place to start. It replaces A Handbook for the Identification of Insects of Medical Importance first issued in 1943. In addition, brief comments on the biology are supplemented by up-to-date and extensive bibliographies. This book surely belongs in all medical school libraries.
