Abstract A comparative SEM investigation of the transphragma representing the medioanterior margin of the first abdominal tergum in ditrysian Lepidoptera resulted in the establishment of a directed transformation series of gradual modifications. Most remarkably, an additional phragma, for which the term euphragma is proposed, must be assigned to the ground pattern of the Obtectomera. However, this assumption implies that a subsequent loss of the euphragma must be attributed to the ground… Expand

The Epicopeiidae: phylogeny and a redefinition, with the description of new taxa (Lepidoptera: Drepanoidea)
TLDR
A Amana banghaasi Hering, a poorly known species from central China, is transferred to a new genus, Deuveia, which belongs to the Epicopeiidae (Drepanoidea), which turns out to be the sister-group of a clade consisting of all other members of the family. Expand
A morphological appraisal of the new subfamily Epidesmiinae (Lepidoptera: Geometridae) with an overview of all geometrid subfamilies
Our study revises Epidesmiinae, the first new Geometridae subfamily that has been described in 127 years. We studied the morphological characters of representatives from all genera currentlyExpand
Molecular phylogeny of Anthelidae and other bombycoid taxa (Lepidoptera: Bombycoidea)
TLDR
The proposed phylogeny suggests that grass feeding, as apparent from some pest records, probably is an ancestral trait within the subfamily Anthelinae, and contradicts many of the widely accepted phylogenetic hypotheses within the Bombycoidea proposed by Minet (1994). Expand
Phylogeny and tribal classification of Sterrhinae with emphasis on delimiting Scopulini (Lepidoptera: Geometridae)
TLDR
The association of the included Larentiinae taxa with the Cosymbiini-Rhodometrini-Timandrini lineage questions the monophyly of Sterrhinae. Expand
Evolution of proboscis musculature in Lepidoptera
TLDR
A comparative investigation of the galeal anatomy in representatives of all major taxa revealed that the intrinsic g Galeal muscles are derived from the basal g Galeae musculature, a groundplan autapomorphy of the Ditrysia. Expand
Phylogeny of the superfamily Gelechioidea (Lepidoptera: Ditrysia): an exemplar approach
TLDR
Detritivory/fungivory may have evolved only twice within Gelechioidea, though the evolution of larval food substrate use frequently reverses, and it is recommended that no further family group names are introduced within the Gelechiidea unless based on a rigorous analysis of inter‐relationships. Expand
The phylogenetic relationships of Chalcosiinae (Lepidoptera, Zygaenoidea, Zygaenidae)
The chalcosiine zygaenid moths constitute one of the most striking groups within the lower-ditrysian Lepidoptera, with highly diverse mimetic patterns, chemical defence systems, scent organs,Expand
Molecular phylogenetic and morphological studies on the systematic position of Heracula discivitta reveal a new subfamily of Pseudobistonidae (Lepidoptera: Geometroidea)
TLDR
The molecular phylogenetic analyses indicate that this species is sister to Pseudobiston pinratanai Inoue, a member of a recently established monotypic family Pseud Obistonidae, and a new subfamily of PseudOBistonidae is proposed to accommodate H. discivitta. Expand
Cimelioidea : A new superfamily name for the gold moths (Lepidoptera: Glossata)
TLDR
A new superfamily name, Cimelioidea, is hereby formally proposed to replace Axiidae and is tentatively assigned to ”Geometromorpha”, but its phylogenetic relationships with the CalliduloideA,”butterflies”(= Hedyloidea + Rhopalocera, and Geometroidea) cannot be determined without a comprehensive phylogenetic backbone. Expand
Advances in Geometroidea phylogeny, with characterization of a new family based on Pseudobiston pinratanai (Lepidoptera, Glossata)
TLDR
Analysis of molecular and morphological data indicates that Pseudobiston pinratanai is closely related to Epicopeiidae and that the superfamily Geometroidea is redefined and its internal phylogenetic relationships are discussed. Expand

The Ditrysia, which comprise the great majority of extant Lepidoptera, are divided into thirty superfamilies (instead of the fifteen to twenty usually recognized). Several of them are conceived in aExpand
A contribution towards an understanding of the morphology and phylogeny of the Ditrysian Lepidoptera
TLDR
This morphological work has been extended to include the primitive Lepidoptera (with the Trichoptera) in the case of the mesosternopleural region, and to provide information on the evolution of the higher taxa in the order. Expand
Parepisparis Bethune-Baker and the composition of the Oenochrominae (Lepidoptera: Geometridae)
TLDR
The classification of Parepisparis Bethune-Baker (Geometridae: Oenochrominae) is revised, with the so-called robust-bodied members of the grouping excluded and various geometrid genera that have been added to the oenchromines by default added by default. Expand
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. Expand
Revision and phylogeny of the Limacodid-group families, with evolutionary studies on slug caterpillars (Lepidoptera:Zygaenoidea)
TLDR
This work proposes a novel hypothesis concerning the evolutionary transformation from proiegs to a slug-like ventral surface in slug caterpillars, based on the phylogenetic analysis of Limacodid group families. Expand
The Bombycoidea: phylogeny and higher classification (Lepidoptera: Glossata)
TLDR
This paper is chiefly aimed at reassessing the limits of four bombycoid families, namely the Eupterotidae, Saturniidae, Lemoni family, and Brahmaeidae, and another newly proposed clade groups together the Endromidae, Mirinidae and Saturni family. Expand
The higher classification of butterflies (Lepidoptera): problems and prospects
TLDR
The cladistic analysis supports a number of currently held views about butterfly classification, and suggests sister group relationships between Papilionoidea and Hesperioidea, and Pieridae and (Lycaenidae + Nymphalidae). Expand
The Australian moth family Lophocoronidae and the basal phylogeny of the Lepidoptera – Glossata
TLDR
The endemic Australian primitive moth family Lophocoronidae was previously known from three species represented by male 'museum' specimens only and the known Australian range of the family now extends from east of Perth to south of Sydney. Expand
Tympanal organs of geometrid moths: a review of their morphology, function, and systematic importance
TLDR
The basic components of the tympanal organs of Geometridae are described against the background of the relevant literature and a Latin‐based nomenclature is proposed to standardize the terminology. Expand

TLDR
The morphology of Fraus is described in some detail with emphasis on the adult moth, and a new interpretation of hepialid male genitalia is presented, intended to serve as reference for the study of the classification of Hepialoidea and lower Lepidoptera. Expand
