Lepidoptera phylogeny and systematics: the state of inventorying moth and butterfly diversity
TLDR
The currently recognized robust support for the monophyly of the Lepidoptera is outlined, and the phylogeny of the principal lineages within the order is reviewed succinctly, and some thoughts on how present and future systematic lepidopterology might be prioritised are presented.
The Lepidoptera of Europe: A Distributional Checklist
TLDR
The first list to cover the entire European fauna of butterflies and moths since the famous Staudinger-Rebel Catalogue which was published as long ago as in 1901, the Lepidoptera of Europe will be an indispensable tool for anyone working with the European faunas of any group of Lepids.
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.
New Species in the Old World: Europe as a Frontier in Biodiversity Exploration, a Test Bed for 21st Century Taxonomy
TLDR
It is shown that contrary to general belief, developed and heavily-studied parts of the world are important reservoirs of unknown species, and the importance of developing a system that better supports and guides this formidable workforce as they seek to overcome the Taxonomic Impediment and speed up the process of describing the planetary biodiversity before it is too late.
Species-Level Para- and Polyphyly in DNA Barcode Gene Trees: Strong Operational Bias in European Lepidoptera
TLDR
It is suggested that species-level non-monophyly in COI gene trees is less common than previously supposed, with many cases reflecting misidentifications, the subjectivity of species delimitation or other operational factors.
Lepidoptera. Chapter 11
TLDR
It is highlighted that four species in particular, Diaphania perspectalis, Cacyreus marshalli, Cameraria ohridella and Paysandisia archon, are the most important current economic threats.
DNA barcoding as a screening tool for cryptic diversity: an example from Caryocolum, with description of a new species (Lepidoptera, Gelechiidae)
TLDR
Deep splits with a maximum intraspecific barcode divergence beyond a threshold of 3% are observed in Caryocolum amaurella, indicating possible cryptic diversity and the taxonomy of these taxa has to be re-assessed in the future.
Plesiozela, gen. nov. from temperate South America: apparent sister-group of the previously known Heliozelidae (Lepidoptera : Incurvarioidea:Heliozelidae)
TLDR
Plesiozela, gen. nov. is described from temperate South America and considered to represent the sister-group of a clade comprising all previously known heliozelid genera, from which it differs in retaining a cephaliciture of exclusively erect piliform scales and long, folded and 5-segmented maxillary palps.
