The Geometridae are the second most diverse family of Lepidoptera. Seven subfamilies of geometrid moths have been recognized worldwide, and five of those have been recorded in Chile. The highest species richness of Chilean Geometrids is concentrated in Ennominae and Larentiinae, subfamilies that will be treated in subsequent volumes of this catalog. The earlier catalogue of the Chilean geometrid moths was published by Angulo & Casanueva (1981), who listed species with no more records that type…

A database and checklist of geometrid moths (Lepidoptera) from Colombia

The Colombian Geometridae database is enriched significantly by including DNA barcodes, two nuclear markers, photos of vouchers and georeferenced occurrences of 281 specimens of geometrid moths from different localities, the beginning of an identification guide to Colombian geometric moths, whose identities are currently often provisional only.

Molecular phylogeny of Sterrhinae moths (Lepidoptera: Geometridae): towards a global classification

A multigene phylogenetic study was carried out to test current, mostly morphology‐based hypotheses on Sterrhinae phylogeny with additional material included from further geographical areas and morphologically different lineages, and results generally agree with earlier hypotheses at tribal levels and support the hypothesis that Sterrhinee comprises two major lineages.

An online taxonomic facility of Geometridae (Lepidoptera), with an overview of global species richness and systematics

Abstract We present a new, online, open access portal to the geometrid moths of the world (Lepidoptera: Geometridae). The portal provides access to the global database including data on



Geometrid moths of the world : a catalogue (Lepidoptera, Geometridae)

The British Museum (Natural History), now named the Natural History Museum, London, England, has over the past 150 years accumulated a formidable card catalog of all described names of Lepidoptera

Caterpillars and Host Plant Records for 59 Species of Geometridae (Lepidoptera) from a Montane Rainforest in Southern Ecuador

During four months of field surveys at the Reserva Biológica San Francisco in the south Ecuadorian Andes, caterpillars of 59 Geometridae species were collected in a montane rainforest and reared to adults and the resulting data on host plant affiliations of these species was collated.

Neotropical Emerald moths: a review of the genera (Lepidoptera: Geometridae, Geometrinae)

Abstract The classification of the Neotropical genera of the Geometrinae is reviewed and 38 genera are recognized (including one nomen dubium). Seven generic synonyms are newly established and the

Neotropical ennomine moths: a review of the genera (Lepidoptera: Geometridae)

The classification of the Neotropical genera of the Ennominae is reviewed and 267 genera are recognised to occur in this region. Three new genera are described and three others are reinstated, while

A Synonymic Catalogue of Lepidoptera Heterocera (Moths)

THE publication of the first volume of Mr. Kirby's Catalogue of Heterocera cannot fail to be regarded as a great event amongst students of exotic moths, and should mark an epoch from which is to

Diversity and community structure of geometrid moths of disturbed habitat in a montane area in the Ecuadorian Andes

The conservation of secondary forest remnants and natural forest appears to be essential for the survival of the very species-rich Andean geometrid moth communities.

Phylogenetic study of the genera of Trichopterygini from Austral South American (Lepidoptera: Geometridae): a new classification

A new taxonomic order for Trichopterygini of the Andean Region of Southern South America is suggested, and species are more closely related to the genus Tatosoma from New Zealand, the synapomorphies that demonstrate this are: swollen metaepimeron and hypertrophy of the second abdominal segment.

Molecular relationships of the Australian Ennominae (Lepidoptera: Geometridae) and implications for the phylogeny of the Geometridae from molecular and morphological data

The results are at odds with traditionally held beliefs on the origins of Geometridae but are in broad agreement with and elaborate on the findings of Abraham et al. (2001).

SYSTEMATICS, MORPHOLOGY AND PHYSIOLOGY Adiciones a la Fauna de Geométridos (Lepidoptera: Geometridae) de Chile

ABSTRACT - Three species of geometrid moths are reported from the extreme North of Chile. All three are new for the Chilean fauna: Scopula umbilicata (Fabricius, 1794) (Sterrhinae), Cataspilates

An unexpected hotspot of moth biodiversity in Chilean northern Patagonia (Lepidoptera, Geometridae)

In a small area around Huinay station, northern Patagonia (Chile), 75 geometrid moth species were collected at light in three subsequent nights, 87 in a short 11-day period under suboptimal weather
