A revision of the genus Xestia subg. Schoyenia Auriv. (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae), with descriptions of four new species and a new subspecies
TLDR
The taxonomy, phylogeny and zoogeography of the thirteen species of the subgenus Schoyenia known from the Holarctic region are reviewed and three species and five generic names are placed in synonymy for the first time and seven new combinations are proposed.
Geographic Distribution, Phylogeny, and Genetic Diversity of the Fruit- and Blood-Feeding Moth Calyptra thalictri Borkhausen (Insecta: Lepidoptera: Erebidae)
TLDR
The findings suggest that while the blood-feeding populations are not monophyletic, there is geographical structure and the analysis of macroclimate variables suggests that altitude and precipitation are the environmental variables most critical to habitat suitability in this lineage.
ANARTA CORDIGERA (THUNBERG) (LEPIDOPTERA: NOCTUIDAE: HADENINAE), A SPECIES COMPLEX
The status of Anarta cordigera (Thunberg, 1788), formerly treated as a circumboreal holarctic species, is reassessed in the light of characters of the male vesica and female bursa copulatrix.
Zoogeography of the Holarctic species of the Noctuidae (Lepidoptera): impoftance of the Beringian refuge
TLDR
The origin of the Beringian fauna and the mammoth-steppe idea are discussed, and the earlier view about Amphiatlantic distributions in the Lepidoptera is refuted.
A review of the genera Elydnodes Hampson, 1913 and Antitrisuloides Holloway, 1985 with description of two new species (Lepidoptera, Noctuidae). Revision of Pantheinae, contribution III
Two genera in the noctuid subfamily Pantheinae are revised: Elydnodes Hampson, 1913 and Antitrisuloides Holloway, 1985. Two new species (Elydnodes griseata sp. n. and Antitrisuloides siamensis sp.
