About this book

Language: English

The project “Biota Taiwanica” was first launched in 2007 under the sponsorship of the National Science Council. The aim of the whole series is to present a contemporary account of Taiwan’s native fauna and flora for various purposes, such as scientific research, education, professional training, resource management and interest of the general public. Although our knowledge of the island’s Lepidoptera fauna remains far from complete, the immediate and potential value of the series is beyond doubt. This series is aimed to provide a synopsis of the native Lepidoptera species of Taiwan, and to serve as a concise manual for identification. This series also incorporates colour pictures of each taxon, dichotomous keys, diagnoses of all taxa, valid names and synonymys, followed by references, geographical distributions and general biology and citation of representative museum collections.

This volume deals with the noctuid subfamily Eriopinae.
