Toward reconstructing the evolution of advanced moths and butterflies (Lepidoptera: Ditrysia): an initial molecular study
The results corroborate the broad outlines of the current working phylogenetic hypothesis for Ditrysia, demonstrate that some prominent features of that hypothesis, including the position of the butterflies, need revision, and resolve the majority of family and subfamily relationships within superfamilies as thus far sampled.

A Large-Scale, Higher-Level, Molecular Phylogenetic Study of the Insect Order Lepidoptera (Moths and Butterflies)
This study highlights the challenge of finding optimal topologies when analyzing hundreds of taxa and shows that some nodes get strong support only when analysis is restricted to nonsynonymous change, while total change is necessary for strong support of others.
An annotated catalog of fossil and subfossil Lepidoptera (Insecta: Holometabola) of the world
The fossil records of Lepidoptera described formally or informally in the world literature are assembled, with a total of 667 records dealing with at least 4,568 specimens, including lepidopteran fossils which cannot be placed in any taxonomic rank.
Phylogeny and Evolution of Lepidoptera.
Progress on lepidopteran phylogeny since 1975 is summarized, emphasizing the superfamily level, and some resulting advances in their understanding are discussed, to summarize the past two decades of molecular data results and discuss the resulting advances.
Can Deliberately Incomplete Gene Sample Augmentation Improve a Phylogeny Estimate for the Advanced Moths and Butterflies (Hexapoda: Lepidoptera)?
This node (Gelechioidea + Apoditrysia), tentatively proposed by previous authors on the basis of four morphological synapomorphies, is the first major subset of ditrysian superfamilies to receive strong statistical support in any phylogenetic study.

Bionomics of bagworms (Lepidoptera: Psychidae).
The unusual mating behavior of bagworms, characterized by an earlier emergence of females than males and a high proportion of females that do not mate as adults, challenges conventional wisdom regarding the evolution of mating systems.
