One of the most significant publications in the history of American entomology, this series will contain color photographs of more than 12,000 species of North American moths. Written by acknowledged specialists in each group, it constitutes thorough coverage of the North American fauna, including Greenland, with descriptions of new genera and species where appropriate.

The comprehensive text defines families, genera and species, gives all scientific and common names, type-species designations, type-localities, and references to original publications, plus keys to taxonomic units where applicable. The narrative account for each species gives information necessary to supplement the figures and provides a brief discussion of distribution, flight period, life history and larval characteristics if known, food plants and variation. Data is included for geographic and seasonal distribution.

All species and subspecies are illustrated in color because of the exceptional importance of color and pattern as recognition characteristics in the Lepidoptera. In addition to color photographs of adults, line drawings or photographs of structural characteristics such as antennae, wing venation or genitalia are included as needed to assure positive identification.

This series is an essential addition to the library of any lepidopterist, museum or institution of higher learning. Fascicles are 8-1/2 x 11"; paperback. Parts published to date are listed in fascicle number order.
