The Dragonflies of Herefordshire by Peter Garner was published by the Herefordshire Biological Records Centre in 2005. ISBN 978-0-9551880-0-8.

 It is a stiff glossy card covered A5 book of 140 pages. It begins with chapters on the history of recording in Herefordshire and an account of the county wetlands. Steve Roe (Manager of the Hereford BRC) has contributed a chapter on dragonfly natural history. Following a check list there are individual species accounts. Each contains a distribution map, several colour photos, and notes on flight period, status, habitat, behaviour, and appearance. The book is an attractive, well-produced, personal account of the dragonflies of Herefordshire.
