The best 14 euro’s you have ever spend ( And I keep wondering why I am not rich 🤑)

For all non dutch readers: there will be an English translation, but not this year (spring 2022)

Great Eric. And rest assured: I have enough money, hence I don't get one penny from your 14 euros. Jeugdbondsuitgeverij is world champion in making cheap books (their audience are youth = jeugd) and I gladly support them.

Is voetkussentje a common entomological word?

I already received the book. I can recommend it to everyone (although I can imagine some of you might want to wait for the English translation). For the price of Euro 14.-- I think it is still worth buying it, even if Dutch is not that easy for you to read.

Congratulations Theo, very nice publication!!!

@John : we in the Netherlands have a tradition of using dutch terms in popular science. In dipterology, this dates back to Van der Goot in the 1950s.
So, we avoid “pulvilli” and say “voetkussentjes”

Personally, I totally overlooked it can be read as “kissing feet”.

My boss predicts this book will have a large “secondary market of interest”
