Moths of Europe, Volume 5: Owlet Moths exclusively covers moths traditionally classified in the Noctuidae family encountered in Europe and its neighbouring regions. Here, the contemporary classification is adopted. Four families are featured: Noctuidae, Euteliidae, Nolidae and Erebidae. The Erebidae now include some moths formerly placed in separate families but downgraded to subfamily level, i.e. the Arctiinae and Lymantriinae. These two were dealt with in Volume 1 of this series.
More than 1000 species are illustrated and described in detail, with special focus on their possible variations. Their biology is highlighted (food plants, biotopes they frequent, their usual flight-times and distribution). Also, the status of some taxa has been revised. Where accurate identification is especially difficult, photos of genitalia of both sexes are shown. Distribution maps are given for the majority of the species featured.
