BACKGROUND The moth family Geometridae (inchworms or loopers), with approximately 23,000 described species, is the second most diverse family of the Lepidoptera. Apart from a few recent attempts based on morphology and molecular studies, the phylogeny of these moths has remained largely uninvestigated. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We performed a rigorous and extensive molecular analysis of eight genes to examine the geometrid affinities in a global context, including a search for its… CONTINUE READING
