A review of Micardia Butler, 1878 from China (Lepidoptera, Noctuidae, Eustrotiinae
TLDR
Six species of the genus Micardia Butler, 1878 are recognized from China and three new species, M. distincta and M. minuta, closely allied to M. pulcherrima are described.
From the phylogeny of the Satyrinae butterflies to the systematics of Euptychiina (lepidoptera: nymphalidae): history, progress and prospects.
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses for Euptychiina carried out to date recover the monophyly of the group and have identified a variety of genera as non-monophyletic, but further work is necessary to resolve the position of the subtribe and the evolutionary relationships of several genera.
New Noctuidae (s.l.) species from the Korean fauna with description of a new species of Bryophila Treitschke, 1825 (Lepidoptera: Erebidae and Noctuidae).
TLDR
Eight Erebidae and Noctuidae species are reported for the first time from Korea and two formerly misidentified species, Abrostola korbi and Diachrysia witti, are discussed.
Revision of Higher Classification of Superfamily Noctuoidea (Lepidoptera) in Egypt
TLDR
Revision of Superfamily Noctuoidea in Egypt can be summarized by four families, 31 subfamilies and 329 species belonging to 138 genera as follows: Family Erebidae, Family Euteliidae, Family Nolidae, and Family Noctuidae.
Description of a new species of the genus Rhynchina Guenée, 1854 (Lepidoptera, Erebidae, Hypeninae) from Southeastern Tibet, China
TLDR
A new species of the genus Rhynchina Guenée, which is compared with a supercially similar congener, R. rivuligera Butler, 1889 with illustrations of their imagoes and genitalia.
Phylogeny and Evolution of Lepidoptera.
TLDR
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.
Molecular phylogenetics of Erebidae (Lepidoptera, Noctuoidea)
TLDR
The first large‐scale molecular phylogenetic analysis of the moth family Erebidae is undertaken, including almost all subfamilies, as well as most tribes and subtribes, revealing a well‐resolved skeleton phylogenetic hypothesis with 18 major lineages.
A Revision of North American Lactura (Lepidoptera, Zygaenoidea, Lacturidae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses, larval phenotypes, and life history information reveal that much of the historic taxonomic confusion rampant across this group in North America traces to the phenotypic variation in just one species, L.subfervens.
Contribution to the knowledge on the genus Oroplexia Hampson, 1908 (Lepidoptera, Noctuidae), with descriptions of two new subspecies from Sichuan, China
TLDR
Two new subspecies of Oroplexia fortunata siranga Volynkin, Saldaitis & Gyulai are described from western Sichuan (China) and the male genitalia are illustrated for the first time.
Comments on differences in classification of the superfamily Noctuoidea (Insecta, Lepidoptera) between Eurasia and North America
TLDR
An attempt is made to bring consensus between the classifications of the Noctuoidea in Europe and North America using check lists from the two regions.

New view of the higher classification of the Noctuidae (Lepidoptera)
TLDR
Several examples are given to demonstrate that the current higher classification of the Noctuidae has resulted from a predarwinistic thinking, and can only be achieved by applying the principles of phylogenetic systematics.
A review of the higher classification of the Noctuoidea ( Lepidoptera ) with special reference to the Holarctic fauna
The higher classification of the Noctuoidea (Oenosandridae, Doidae, Notodontidae, Strepsimanidae, Nolidae, Lymantriidae, Arctiidae, Erebidae, Micronoctuidae, and Noctuidae) is reviewed from the
The phylogeny of the Noctuidae (Lepidoptera)
TLDR
The proposed phylogenetic system confirms the monophyly of the Noctuidae and a sister‐group relationship between the NoctUIDae and the Aganaidae is supported.
Systematics and evolution of the cutworm moths (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae): evidence from two protein‐coding nuclear genes
TLDR
Mapping of a preliminary synopsis of species diversities, host use patterns and latitudinal distributions on the phylogeny suggests that the diversification of trifines may have been promoted, to a degree unique among Macrolepidoptera, by the Tertiary expansion of seasonal, open habitats and their associated herbaceous floras.
Higher level phylogeny of Satyrinae butterflies (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae) based on DNA sequence data.
TLDR
It is inferred that Manataria is closely related to Melanitini; Palaeonympha belongs to Euptychiina; Oressinoma, Orsotriaena and Coenonympha group with the Hypocystina; Miller's (1968); and Parargina is polyphyletic and its components group with multiple distantly related lineages.
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.
Phylogenetic aspects in the higher classification of the subfamily Catocalinae (Lepidoptera, Noctuidae).
TLDR
Wir halten es nicht fur ratsam, die Melipotini and Eulepidotini in dieses Monophylum einzuschliesen, da wir keine Synapomorphien dieser drei Tribus finden konnten, die sich als strukturell ziemlich verschieden erwiesen.

The Checklist is the first complete reference to the taxonomy, nomenclature and classification of the entire described Australian fauna of Lepidoptera. The book contains a short introduction to each
Revised higher classification of the Noctuoidea (Lepidoptera)
TLDR
A more inclusive definition of the family Noctuidae is proposed that adds the subfamilies Nolinae, Strepsimaninee, Arctiinae, Lymantriinae and Erebinae to theSubfamilies more traditionally included in the NoctUIDae are added.
Phylogenetic utility of elongation factor-1 alpha in noctuoidea (Insecta: Lepidoptera): the limits of synonymous substitution.
TLDR
Interestingly, the few nonsynonymous changes appear no more phylogenetically reliable than synonymous changes, and signal strength for basal divergences is weak and fails to improve with character weighting; thus, dense taxon sampling is probably needed for strong inference from EF-1 alpha regarding deeper splits in Noctuoidea (probably early Tertiary).
