This volume extends the UAE's catalogue of arthropods from 1400 species to 1790 species, and describes 83 new species, four new genera and even a new tribe. The chapters include about two arachnid taxa (pseudoscorpions and cunaxid mites), and cover a total of 63 families, 26 of them previously not recorded from the country. Three chapters deal with entomobryomorph springtails, earwigs and barklice, respectively, and the rest are focused on families in the 'megadiverse' orders Coleoptera, Hymenoptera, Lepidoptera and Diptera.
