An inventory of the 616 valid species of Exoporia occurring in the world is presented, with the species placed in 68 genera. A full synonymy of each genus and species is given, including infrasubspecific names; 233 available names are in synonymy and 70 infrasubspecific names are noted. The listing of each species includes author, date of original description, genus of original combination and type locality. Three new generic and 13 new specific synonyms are established; 106 species are… 
An illustrated catalogue of the type specimens of Lepidoptera (Insecta) housed in the Zoological Museum Hamburg (ZMH): Part I. superfamilies Hepialoidea, Cossoidea, and Zygaenoidea
TLDR
An updated type catalogue of the lepidopteran superfamilies Hepialoidea, Cossoidea and Zygaenoidea deposited in the Zoological Museum of Hamburg (ZMH) is provided, aiming to provide a comprehensive taxonomic guide to this collection.
A new species of Pharmacis Hübner, 1820 from Spain with a brief review of the genera Pharmacis and Korscheltellus Börner, 1920 (Lepidoptera, Hepialidae)
TLDR
A new ghost moth (Hepialidae) species is described from the Picos de Europa National Park, Cantabria, in northern Spain and is closely related to Pharmacisaemilianus (Constantini, 1911), an endemic of the Italian Apennines.
Taxonomic Revision and Vicariance Biogeography of the Central and South American Ghost Moth Genus Druceiella (Lepidoptera: Hepialidae)
TLDR
The distribution of Druceiella species between Central America and southern Bolivia-Brazil is explained as the result of vicariance followed by subsequent dispersal and sympatry of some species.
Revision of the endemic Brazilian ‘neotheorid’ hepialids, with morphological evidence for the phylogenetic relationships of the basal lineages of Hepialidae (Lepidoptera: Hepialoidea)
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of 16 terminal taxa in Hepialidae sensu lato based on 18 morphological characters scored from adult morphology confirmed that Neotheora and Paratheora are sister taxa, and together these two ‘neotheorid genera’ comprise the sister group of the remaining Hepialaceae s.str.lat.
Thitarodes shambalaensis sp. nov. (Lepidoptera, Hepialidae): a new host of the caterpillar fungus Ophiocordyceps sinensis supported by genome-wide SNP data
TLDR
Suggestions for building a more robust phylogeny of the genus Thitarodes are provided and some of the conservation threats that species from this genus face due to unprecedented habitat exploitation are highlighted.
Catalogue of the Latin American Hepialidae with taxonomic remarks (Lepidoptera)
TLDR
A catalogue of the Latin American Hepialidae is provided, with 125 species in 30 genera recognized as valid.
A new Cibyra Walker, 1856 from southern Brazil with taxonomic notes (first note) (Lepidoptera, Hepialidae)
TLDR
A new species of Cibyra Walker, 1856 from south ern Bra zil is described and the male holo type is deposited in Collection Padre Je sus Santiago Moure at University Fe de ral do Parana, Cu ri ti ba, Brazil.
Lepidoptera of Canada
TLDR
The known Lepidoptera of the provinces and territories of Canada are summarised, and current knowledge is compared to the state of knowledge in 1979, with Nunavut, Prince Edward Island, and British Columbia thought to show the greatest deficit.
A molecular phylogeny for the oldest (nonditrysian) lineages of extant Lepidoptera, with implications for classification, comparative morphology and life‐history evolution
TLDR
The goal of this paper is to test previous hypotheses of nonditrysian phylogeny against a data set consisting of 61 nond itrysian species plus 20 representative Ditrysia and eight outgroups (Trichoptera), nearly all sequenced for 19 nuclear genes (up to 14 700 bp total).

The peculiar Asian ghost moth genus Bipectilus Chu & Wang: taxonomy and systematic position (Lepidoptera: Hepialidae s.str.)
TLDR
The monophyly of Bipectilus is supported by several autapomorphies but the genus also possesses many plesiomorphic traits including spurs on the hind tibia in some species.
Macrolepidoptera of Fiji and Rotuma : a taxonomic and biogeographic study
TLDR
The Macrolepidoptera fauna of Fiji is discussed biogeographically in the context of the Pacific and the present-day distribution of species related to the geological and palaeogeographic history of the western Pacific is discussed.
Lepidoptera : annotated catalogue, and keys to family-group taxa
This annotated synonymic catalogue represents an attempt to verify and define nomenclaturally the species of Lepidoptera recorded from New Zealand since 1769. It is based on a thorough re-examination
A revision of the southern African family Prototheoridae (Lepidoptera: Hepialoidea)
TLDR
The systematics and external morphology of the southern African family Prototheoridae are reviewed, including five new species: angolae, biserrata, drackensbergae, geniculata, and merga, and two possibly new species represented only by female specimens are described but not named.
Afrotheora, a new genus of primitive Hepialidae from Africa (Lepidoptera: Hepialoidea)
TLDR
The monophyly of Afrotheora is recognized by the possession of two unique characters: long bristle-like setae from the antennal scape reaching almost across the compound eye, and the trulleum in the male genitalia comprising two lateral sclerotized rods separated by a membrane, and it is demonstrated that the new taxon is not subordinate to any other of these hepialoid clades.
PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS Some notes on the biology and status of the Mnesarchaeidae (Lepidoptera)
TLDR
Wing pattern and genitalic features are used to divide the 6 described species of Mnesarchaea into 3 distinctive species-groups and on the basis of larval and pupal characters it is concluded that they do indeed show a strong similarity to the Hepialoidea.
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.
Osrhoes coronta Druce, the New World palaeosetid moth: A reappraisal, with description of a new type of female genital apparatus (Lepidoptera, Exoporia)
TLDR
The monobasic Colombian genus Osrhoes is redescribed on the basis of the male holotype and a female paratype of O. coronta Druce, 1900 and the status of the crossvein character as an apomorphy is debatable, it is preferred at present to uphold the tentative assignment ofOsrhoes to the Palaeosetidae.
Hepialidae (Insecta: Lepidoptera)
TLDR
New Zealand's ghost moths and porina moths are revised, and recognition of species has been supported by electrophoretic studies conducted elsewhere; fuliginea has been 'rediscovered' through these studies.
Primitive ghost moths. Morphology and taxonomy of the Australian genus Fraus Walker (Lepidoptera: Hepialidae s. lat.).
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.
