About this book

Published in two books, volume 1 containing the text, volume 2 containing the plates. The books includes descriptions of 2 genera, 149 species and 17 subspecies and the following taxonomic reviews:
- Review of the genera Zekelita Walker, 1863, Proluta Saalmüller, 1854 and Rhynchina Guenée, 1854
- Review of the Afrotropical-subtropical (Subsaharan) species of the genus Aedia Hübner, [1823]
- Review of the tribe Pericymini Wiltshire, 1976
- Review of the Maliattha Walker, 1863/Ozarba Walker, 1865 genera groups of the subfamily Eustrotiinae Grote, 1882 of the Ethiopian and Madagascan Regions

The books are therefore also an introduction to the fauna of Subsaharan Africa and enable indentification of numerous groups of Arabian and African Heterocera which hitherto remained more or less undeterminable.
