About this book

Part of a large taxonomic revision on South African moths. This is the final part to cover 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. This work contains both the remainder of the text (pages 241-284) and the plates (plates 130-138), and includes a key to all the genera of the Gelechiadae dealt with in Volumes 5 and 6.
