The history of lepidopteran studies of the Inner Seychelles is about one hundred years old, and the data have been summarized recently in a comprehensive monograph (Gerlach & Matyot 2006). The largest granitic islands contain the greatest number of species—345 for Mahe and 288 for Silhouette—but the second largest, Praslin, has only 42 recorded species. A total of 17 Geometridae species occur in the granitic Seychelles. Among them are six species of Larentiinae with two endemics, including… 
Redescription of Thalassodes antithetica Herbulot, 1962, an endemic moth from Inner Seychelles (Lepidoptera: Geometridae: Geometrinae).
The Seychelles archipelago is characterized by an exceptionally high level of endemism in certain taxa, including at least 275 endemic species of Lepidoptera, but the emerald moth specimens are lacking in extensive samples obtained by earlier collectors.
New and recent records of hawk moths (Lepidoptera: Sphingidae) from Seychelles, with a description of a new insular subspecies
This study examines a recent sample containing two hawk moth species from Praslin and Mahé, Seychelles and describes Temnora fumosa seychellensis Bolotov & Spitsyn ssp.
New and recent records of moth and butterfly species (Insecta: Lepidoptera) from Praslin and Mahé Islands, Seychelles
It is highlighted that there is some evidence of faunal exchange between the two largest islands of the granitic Seychelles and that the lepidopteran fauna of Praslin has been largely underestimated.


Australian Trichopterygini (Lepidoptera: Geometridae) With Descriptions of Eight New Taxa.
Three genera and 14 species of Trichopterygini (Lepidoptera : Geometridae : Larentiinae) are recognized from mainland Australia; no species is known from Tasmania. Eight of the taxa are new.
A morphological review of tribes in Larentiinae (Lepidoptera: Geometridae)
Viidalepp, Jaan (2011): A morphological review of tribes in Larentiinae (Lepidoptera: Geometridae). Zootaxa 3136: 1-44, DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.279481
DNA primers for amplification of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I from diverse metazoan invertebrates.
We describe "universal" DNA primers for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of a 710-bp fragment of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene (COI) from 11 invertebrate phyla:
Evolution, weighting, and phylogenetic utility of mitochondrial gene sequences and a compilation of conserved polymerase chain reaction primers
Molecular processes are reviewed, the correction of genetic distances and the weighting of DNA data are discussed, and an assessment of the phylogenetic usefulness of specific mitochondrial genes is provided.
Molecular Cloning: A Laboratory Manual
The content has been entirely recast to include nucleic-acid based methods selected as the most widely used and valuable in molecular and cellular biology laboratories.
