About this book

Language: English

The current volume deals with two moth subfamilies, the Catocalinae and the Plusiinae. The Plusiinae has long been a well defined and strongly supported monophyletic unit within the Noctuidae. The Catocalinae have been less intensively studied, possibly because the subfamily is comprised of many more species and genera, and is of considerably greater diversity.

In this volume it was decided to try to make some sense of the huge, diverse and globally distributed, para- and polyphyletic mess of poorly defined members that is the Catocalinae. The authors do not claim that the problems are now fully resolved, but rather that the last seven years of struggling with the Catocalinae have brought more order to the chaos.

In order to place the European genera of Catocalinae and Plusiinae within their respective subfamilies new paragraphs have been introduced in this volume: a World list of catocaline genera (sensu stricto), a world list of calpine genera {sensu lato) (which should perhaps be called the subfamily Erebinae), and a list of all genera and species of World Plusiinae. As in volumes 4-7, lists of all species in genera that occur in Europe are included. In order to fix valid genera of Catocalinae, autapomorphies are listed for all monophyletic groups, based on Hennigian principles.
