The biology of Neuroptera is dealt with by Throne (1971), Aspock et al. (1980), and New (1986, 1989). Schlüter (1986), Kristensen (1991), Aspock et al. (2001), and Aspock (2002) discuss the phylogeny of the order. Arnett (2000) gives a key to the common North American genera, New (1991) to the Australian families, and Plant (1997) to adults of the British species.
