Colyer, C.N. & Hammond, C.O. 1968. Flies of the British Isles. Frederick Warne & Co. Ltd., London. Second edition. Wayside and woodland series.


Probably the best guide to British Flies ever produced. Long out of print unfortunately, but can occasionally be found second hand. The first edition (1951) is in the smaller sized, original Wayside and Woodland format and the reproduction of the superb plates (by Cyril Hammond) is generally thought to be superior. The second edition was somewhat extended and in the later, larger format for the Wayside and Woodland series. Each plate includes two of the plates from the first edition placed side by side.
