Singing Insects of the Chicago Region, the guide that summarizes my survey work on this subject, now is available in its newly updated version.
This edition is pushing 90 pages, with several added species pages, an expanded section on hypotheticals (mainly grasshoppers), over 300 new county records for the covered 22 counties in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan, and an expanded introductory section with topics such as conservation concerns, dispersal ability, and range extension.
This guide is available for free as a 3-meg PDF document. If you are on the mailing list you already should have received it. If you wish to be added to the mailing list (which is used for no other purpose than to forward annual updates of the guide), send a request to my work e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
