About this book

Language: French

This atlas is a continuation of the Atlas des Lépidoptères Gracillariidae Lithocolletinae de France published in 2014 by the same authors and contains illustrations of male and female genitalia of members of the moth subfamilies Gracillariinae (s.l.) and Phyllocnistinae. Thierry Varenne's work completes the study with the iconography of the imagos of these butterflies. The species are grouped by affinity of the larval host plants, i.e. by subservience of the butterflies to the botanical families. The set is structured in plates comprising for each species the representation of the genitalia accompanied at least by a depiction of the forewing, if not by in vivo photographs of remarkable quality, and the indication of the wingspan recorded on spread specimens. Sixty plates are devoted to males and females with a reminder of the illustration appearing in reference on the male plate of the species. In addition, the same numbering is assigned to each species throughout the book. The bibliography is selective, only retaining works involving a study of the genitals to allow comparisons.

Summary in French:
Cet atlas est dans la continuité de l’Atlas des Lépidoptères Gracillariidae Lithocolletinae de France publié en 2014 par les mêmes auteurs. Illustration des genitalia mâles et femelles des Gracillariinae (s.l.) et des Phyllocnistinae. Le concours de Thierry Varenne vient compléter l’étude par l’iconographie des imagos de ces papillons. Autre particularité, les espèces sont regroupées par affinités des plantes-hôtes larvaires, c’est à dire par inféodation des papillons aux familles botaniques. L’ensemble est structuré en planches comportant pour chaque espèce la représentation des genitalia accompagnée au minimum par la figuration d’une aile antérieure, sinon de clichés in vivo de remarquable qualité, et de l’indication de l’envergure relevée sur exemplaires étalés. 60 planches sont ainsi consacrées aux mâles et aux femelles avec rappel de l’illustration figurant en référence sur la planche mâle de l’espèce. De plus, la même numérotation est attribuée à chaque espèce dans tout l’ouvrage. La bibliographie proposée est sélective, ne retenant que les travaux comportant une étude des genitalia pour permettre les rapprochements et comparaisons.
