"'a reference book of fundamental importance for all those interested in any of the groups of insects of the Isthmus or the surrounding regions'

"'a major contribution to our understanding of a few groups of importance in the biota of the area ... all articles provide good information ... Introductory chapters place the fauna in context geologically and geographically; these chapters alone make the book worth picking up for perusal ... perhaps begins an important modern series of contributions in an easy-to-use format ... an important contribution to entomology and the Mesoamerican area.'
