About this book

Language: English

This checklist includes a total number of 525 species under 140 genera of three tribes, Arctiini (151 species and 42 genera), Lithosiini (308 species and 90 genera) and Syntomini (66 species and 8 genera) of Arctiinae from India. In this checklist classification proposed by Zahiri et al. (2010, 2012) has been followed. This checklist has been prepared from the above mentioned references and by consulting Moths of Thailand, Volume 6 and Erebidae of Malay Peninsula-Malaysia (Bucsek, 2012). For each species, updated nomenclature, year of publication and area of distribution has been provided. For the distribution of Arctiini, Lithosiini and Syntomini species, Dubatolov (2010), Strand (1922) and Zerny (1912) have been followed respectively, as the reference works. The additional published information on the distribution has been included along with the respective references. Those species which could not be reviewed for their proper generic placement are included sensu lato as recorded in literature. In the preparation of this checklist, efforts have been made to include each and every species (recorded in literature) of Indian Arctiinae with a hope that this work will be an immediate reference for the future Arctiid workers.
