Biology, Identification, and History of the Light Brown Apple Moth, Epiphyas postvittana (Walker) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae: Archipini) in California: An Example of the Importance of Local Faunal
Pheromone trapping efforts in California provide circumstantial evidence that LBAM arrived in California only recently, and previous surveys in California over the past 40 years, for LBAM in particular and for Lepidoptera in general, failed to detect this species.
Biological Interrelationships of Moths and Yucca Schottii
Biological interrelationships of moths and Yucca schottii is studied in detail in the context of moth-to-moth contact and sexual segregation.
Phylogenetic Relationships Within Heliodinidae and Systematics of Moths Formerly Assigned to Heliodines Stainton (Lepidoptera: Yponomeutoidea)
Four uniquely derived autapomorphies for the Heliodinidae are identified: M vein of forewing two-branched, presumably with M3 lost; tegumen greatly expanded posteriorly, forming a sclerotized, hollow tube;ventral branches of apophyses anteriores originating from a fused transverse bridge; and pupa with long, stiff dorsal and lateral setae.
Lepidoptera: Moths, Butterflies
This chapter deals with the order Lepidoptera, an order that includes moths and butterfly that is defined as a monophyletic lineage by a suite of more than 20 derived features, the most obvious of which are the scales and proboscis.
