In the spring you sometimes can find them at the waterfront: empty covers in the form of an insect. From these exuviae dragonflies have just emerged after years of underwater existence as larvae. These exuviae tell you a lot about the prevalence of dragonflies, and hence the ecology of the area.
For the first time there is now a Dutch field guide to help you name the exuviae. The first section provides background information on dragonflies and on the collection, preservation and identification of their exuviae. The second part describes the exuviae of the 80 most common dragonflies and damselflies of Northwest Europe.
• Unique photographs of the exuviae, larvae, adult dragonflies and their habitats
• More than 80 species and complete for Northwest Europe
• Clear identification keys and species descriptions of exuviae
