About this book

Language: English

The present book is a monographic treatment of the tiger moths, or Arctiidae, of the former USSR. Covering the bulk of the Palaearctic fauna, this piece of work is really unprecedented both in scope and scrupulousness. Numerous colour pictures and several drawings richly illustrate the more than 100 species or subspecies considered in the book. Identification keys are mostly based on peripheral characters, only seldom on genitalic ones as well. Manyfold colour photographs show not only pinned specimens (mainly arranged in 24 plates) but also a variety of live moths and/or their most characteristic habitats. Professor Vladimir Murzin, born 1927, is nuclear physicist, Doctor of Physical Sciences, whose interests in butterflies and moths dates back to his childhood. His collection of Lepidoptera is one of the largest private holdings in Russia. He is member of the Russian Entomological Society, the author of several scientific and popular-science books concerning butterflies and moths, of more than 20 other works on ecology and entomology. He has made about 50 collecting trips to various parts of the former Soviet Union and discovered some new species and subspecies of butterflies and moths.
