Toward reconstructing the evolution of advanced moths and butterflies (Lepidoptera: Ditrysia): an initial molecular study
TLDR
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.

Order Lepidoptera Linnaeus, 1758. In : Zhang, Z.-Q. (Ed.) Animal biodiversity: An outline of higher-level classification and survey of taxonomic richness
TLDR
This dissertation aims to provide a history of web exceptionalism from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen in order to explore its roots as well as specific cases up to and including the year in which descriptions of “Web 2.0” began to circulate. Expand
Integration of DNA barcoding into an ongoing inventory of complex tropical biodiversity
TLDR
Adding DNA barcoding to the inventory of the caterpillars, their food plants and parasitoids in northwestern Costa Rica has substantially improved the quality and depth of the inventory, and greatly multiplied the number of situations requiring further taxonomic work for resolution. Expand
Mapping the biosphere: exploring species to understand the origin, organization and sustainability of biodiversity
TLDR
It is concluded that an ambitious goal to describe 10 million species in less than 50 years is attainable based on the strength of 250 years of progress, worldwide collections, existing experts, technological innovation and collaborative teamwork. Expand
A molecular phylogeny for the pyraloid moths (Lepidoptera: Pyraloidea) and its implications for higher‐level classification
TLDR
This work presents the most detailed molecular estimate of relationships to date across the subfamilies of Pyraloidea, and assess its concordance with previous morphology‐based hypotheses. Expand
First record of Duponchelia fovealis (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) in South America
TLDR
The European pepper moth Duponcheliafovealis Zeller (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) is reported for the first time in South America, in the State of Parana, Brazil. Expand
Phylogenetic studies and modern classification of the Pyraloidea (Lepidoptera )
TLDR
Pyraloidea, the third largest superfamily of the Lepidoptera, is comprised of two families - Pyralidae and Crambidae; only the 19 subfamilies that occur in the Western Hemisphere are discussed. Expand
Lepidopteran Biodiversity: Patterns and Estimators
TLDR
To address specific conservation issues, field collections and detailed taxonomic studies are vital to document and compare species richness among specific sites and to make conservation decisions. Expand
Species of Lygomusotima New Genus and Neomusotima Yoshiyasu (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) from Australia and Southeastern Asia Feeding on Lygodium microphyllum (Schizaeaceae)
TLDR
A new genus, Lygomusotima Solis & Yen, and two new species, stria and constricta, are described from Australia and southeastern Asia, and its immatures and biology are described for the first time. Expand
North American Herpetogramma Lederer, 1863 (Lepidoptera: Crambidae: Spilomelinae): Type Specimens and Identity of Species in the United States and Canada
TLDR
Type specimens or the type series of 27 North American Herpetogramma species names were located, mostly in European museums, verified, and dissected to fix and stabilize the current concept of the name. Expand
