F.N. Pierce's volume covering the male Noctuidae was published in 1909; Pierce later realised that the female genitalia were also of value in identification, so the volume covering the female Noctuidae followed in 1942. Though they are regarded as invaluable for identifying difficult species, the originals are not easily available, and the reprinted versions were considered inferior in quality.
Pisces Conservation have worked with the Lancashire and Cheshire Entomological Society to produce this volume in electronic form. They have very carefully scanned and cleaned the original artwork to recreate the plates from scratch. Furthermore, they have added species concordance for all the species and their synonyms, with Bradley and Karsholt numbers, to assist the modern lepidopterist.
Both the male and female volumes of "The Genitalia of the Noctuidae" are available on this one CD, for Windows PCs and Macs, with fully searchable text and hyperlinks for ease of navigation.
The books are in Adobe Acrobat pdf format, allowing high-quality printing of the text and plates. The plates are available separately on the CD as high-resolution images.
