About this book

Hill House Publishers proudly announce the publication of the 2nd and long-awaited final part of the 3-part publication on the Saturniid Moths of the World by Bernard d'Abrera.

Saturniidae Mundi Part II treats approximately 400 species in 65 genera, thus completing the entire Neotropical fauna, the remaining large Afrotropical species (both covered in Parts I and III), and a major revision of the spectacular Indo-Australian silkmoths - the genus Antheraea Hübner. This volume, first begun in 1994, is illustrated with nearly 700 colour figures in the catalogue section, most of which represent primary and secondary types of one rank or another from the Collection of the British Museum of Natural History (BMNH) in London, figuring over 400 species, life size. There is also an Appendix containing 80 colour figures of taxa not present in the BMNH but figured by the Late Claude Lemaire in his final work (2002) on the South American Saturniids.

The work contains a Generic Index, and a Species Index which also includes an alphabetical arrangement of synonyms. The author has prepared major essays on Linnaean morphotaxonomy, and a review of the scientific utility of genitalic dissections in modern taxonomic diagnosis. He has also included a comprehensive glossary of scientific terms. There are also several glorious colour photographs of the living fauna and their environments on different continents, taken in the inimitable style of the author, who makes his pictures in the field, on film, using only available light. Also included in the Preliminary section are the customary photographs of famous Lepidopterists who have made their mark specializing in the study of the Saturniid Moths of the World.
