About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Hungarian

This is the revised and illustrated, bilingual checklist of the Hungarian Macrolepidoptera fauna. It includes the butterflies which now appear to represent one of the rather primitive ditrysian clades, belonging in the traditional sense to the "Microlepidoptera".

This is the second checklist published on native Hungarian Macrolepidoptera within a short time but its aim, content and layout are completely different from that of the previous one or any similar works recently published in Europe.

The previous edition was focusing less on taxonomic data, and did not include the complete phylogenetic systematics of the given groups. This situation has now changed. Published critical revisions of a large number of groups and the results of comprehensive molecular taxonomic analysis have forced the authors to complete an annotated list which would settle most of the disputes on the taxonomy of native Macrolepidoptera, without omiting the questions still waiting to be answered.
