About this book

Part of a large taxonomic revision on South African moths. This covers the Gelechiadae, a little-studied group of micro-moths that has historically been a dumping ground for species that are difficult to place elsewhere. This revision takes genital characters into account, superseding much earlier taxonomic work that was based exclusively on wing venation patterns. Volume 6, Part 1 contains part of the halftone plates, with the remainder issued a couple of years later in Volume 6, Part 2.
