About this book

Language: English with trilingual summary in English, German, and French

On the basis of ample Geometrid material mainly from Northern Sumatra, this faunistic account of the (traditional) Oenochrominae (auct.) of Sumatra lists 9 genera with 43 species, 14 of which are new records for Sumatra. Seven new species (Sarcinodes tornubilatus, Sarcinodes malakarius, Eumelea parda, Eumelea djingga, Derambila gertraudae, Ozola liwana, Ozola edui) and a new subspecies (Eumelea atomata perclara) are described. Photographs of ♂ and ♀ genitalia of most species are presented; new and other taxa are figured on colour plates. Available host-plant information is given for 5 genera, including Eumelea (Macaranga, Mallotus in Euphorbiaceae) and Sarcinodes (Helicia in Protcaccae). The checklist of Sumatran species includes also a table of distribution in other parts of Sundaland (Peninsular Malaya, Borneo, Palawan, Java).
