About this book

Part of a large taxonomic revision on South African moths. This covers the Gelechiadae, a little-studied group of micro-moths that has historically been a dumping ground for species that are difficult to place elsewhere. This revision takes genital characters into account, superseding much earlier taxonomic work that was based exclusively on wing venation patterns. Volume 6, Part 2 follows up directly on Volume 6, Part 1 and contains the remainder of the halftone plates (plates 33-129), and the remainder of the text (pages 145-240). The plates and text are bound in separate volumes. Financial reasons delayed their publication by a number of years.
