Thanks for letting me know. I'm doing a slow pass through this book; I'll get that updated before my next release.

Monsters having a †/‡ on its AC but no * on its name:
-Shield Guardian

Monsters Having a * on its name but no † or ‡ on its AC:
-Banshee
-Barghest
-Drat
-Heucova
-Infernal, Vega
-Infernal, Vrock
-Roper

The Giant Eel has a (*) on its HD, I suppose its form the 1 in 6 of them having a electric special ability, maybe that and the XP for those special cases should be removed?

The Lich has a + on its AC, an error?

The AC and HD of a lich are meant to be minimums, hence the + after the number.

The Basic Fantasy Field Guide, Release 31 -- February 15, 2018: This updated release of the original Field Guide contains edits by Chris Gonnerman. The text of some monsters was changed for clarity (but not for content), and some layout features have been changed for consistency with the new Field Guild 2. We are a long way yet from a new print release, so don't get too excited.

Will also add link for the Monster Index that's now in FG2 (partially anyways; my link completes it and needs to replace or be added/combined to what's already in FG2).

I just noticed that the succubus comes before the quasit, and spined devil, when it should go after.

I also noticed that the two ram varieties (wild, and war) are not in alphabetical order. I'm not sure if this was intentional, or not. The rams also strikes me as two things that could share a stat block, similar to most other animals, although I'm sure that would mess with the flow.
