          Abstract

          Based on morphological and molecular analyses of “Cataclysme riguata Hb. var. subtilisparsata Wehrli, 1932” and C. riguata (Hübner, 1813) the former is raised to species rank. C. subtilisparsata is re-described here and compared with C. riguata. Molecular data derived from DNA barcoding are discussed. We illustrate male and female genitalia of both species and present data on life history and morphology of the early stages of C. subtilisparsata.

            Geometrid Moths of the World

             MJ Scoble (1999)
            The Geometridae is one of the most species-rich families of Lepidoptera. This book is the first comprehensive catalogue of the 35 000 names of these insects. The primary purpose of the work is to provide a substantial body of taxonomic information, much of it previously unpublished, on the available names of the Geometridae. The catalogue is based on the most complete world classification of the geometrids, the card index to genera and species in The Natural History Museum, London. The two volumes include information on type specimens, type localities and, where possible, larval foodplants. A CD-ROM listing all species referred to in the two text volumes is included with the package and will be of great value to verify valid names and to check spelling.

              A morphological review of tribes in Larentiinae (Lepidoptera: Geometridae)

              Tribes of looper moths (Geometridae: Larentiinae) are reviewed. The tribe Dyspteridini Hulst is reinstated (previously synonymous with the Trichopterygini Warren). A new subtribe, Aplocerina, is separated from the Chesiadini Pierce, and the group Ortholithinae Pierce is dealt with as Scotopterygini Warren, the sister taxon to Xanthorhoini. Morphological traits for 22 of 23 larentiine tribes represented in the Holarctic fauna are listed and illustrated. A taxonomy of the subfamily Larentiinae is proposed and supported, using morphological data based on chemical communication structures and male genitalia. A new combination is presented: Melanthia mandshuricata (Bremer), transferred from Mesoleuca Hübner (Larentiini)
