About this book

Language: English

From the introduction:

"The Zoological Survey of India has undertaken a series of surveys of the Andaman & Nicobar Islands. [...] Very little consolidated information is available on the Arctiidae of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. [...] The present study on the Arctiid fauna of the Andaman & Nicobar Islands, as well as an earlier brief report by the author [...], have added four species as new records to India; two species as new to these areas (Andamans); confirmed the occurrence of three species in the Andamans [...] and described a species new to science from the Great Nicobar Island. [...] The range of distribution of each species cited in the text, besides from the actually examined material, has been collected from various sources, including original publication (if available) and other works [...] The present account all in all deals with 36 species distributed over 15 genera in four subfamilies as follows: Nyctemerinae (1 genus, 6 species) ; Micrarctiinae (2 genera, 4 species); Spilosominae (1 genus, 1 species); and Lithosiinae (11 genera, 25 species)."
