About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and French

Jacques Plante (1920-2003) achieved outstanding success both as a songwriter and a noctuid expert. Through his collecting efforts and acquisitions, he built the largest private collection of Noctuidae of the Palearctic and Oriental regions of the late 20th century. Now housed in the 'Muséum Histoire Naturelle, in Geneva, Switzerland, Jacques Plante's Lepidoptera collections include 62,688 specimens of Noctuidae.

This second volume includes the descriptions of new taxa of the rest of the collection's subfamilies (Amphipyrinae, Psaphidinae, Cuculliinae, Oncocnemidinae, Acontiinae, Pantheinae, Dyopsinae, Raphiinae, Acronictinae, Bryophilinae, Heliothinae, Condicinae and Xyleninae). There are 20
new genera, 5 new subgenera, 128 new species, and 39 new subspecies. Surprisingly, a considerable part of these novelties was discovered in the “well-known” groups of Noctuidae and in “well-known” areas like Europe, or the Far East (e.g. the Russian Far East, Japan, Taiwan and Indochina). The new species and subspecies are illustrated as magnified colour images at 8 per plate on 80 plates, and 462 genitalia preparations are shown in black and white on 154 plates.
