about this item

Mitsuhashi has published extensively on entomophagy in Japanese, and noticing the lack of recent books on English, sought to fill the void. His first part--most of the book--lists edible insects in order of their taxonomic group. Among the 19 groups are Odonata, Phasmida, Coleoptera, Diptera, Lepidoptera, and Hymenoptera. Typical entries are Catantops ornatus The adults are an article of food in Zambia (DeFoliart 2002); Aspongopus nepalensis In Assam, India, this bug is sought after by people as food. They pound the bug and mix it with rice (Distant 1902); and Anomala exoleta (red-brown beetle) China: this species is used as an anodyne (Zimian et al. 1997). Other sections list edible insects by country and districts, providing just the name so readers can find it in the main section. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
