Hello all,

I’ve made a list of books and websites which I think can be helpful for learning about and identifying of insect species from the Guianas. To increase the usefulness of the list I’ve added some short descriptions. If you have additions or other remarks (like if you notice dead links or spelling errors), please post them as a reply to this message and I will include them in this list when I've got time. :)

Some of these books and websites contain info on beetles and butterflies/moths as well, but weren't included by me in the lists in the beetle and butterfly/moth boards.
