An Introduction, giving notes on Nomenclature, Classification and Conventions; and Terms and Abbreviations, is followed by a History of the Scientific Nomenclature of Lepidoptera. In the Systematic Section, the meanings of over 4000 names are given. The nomenclature is that of Kloet & Hincks (1972) with more recent amendments. The specific names (each preceded by the Bradley & Fletcher Log Book number) are explained, together with the names of the genera, families and suborders to which they belong, giving both Latin and Greek roots. Appendixes include People commemorated in the names of Lepidoptera; Geographical Names and Unresolved Names. References and Indexes complete the work.

About the Author:

Maitland Emmet, a widely respected amateur entomologist, was one of Britain’s leading specialists in the microlepidoptera and senior editor of the series The Moths and Butterflies of Great Britain and Ireland until his recent death. As a classical scholar and crossword enthusiast he was ideally equipped for the research needed in the preparation of this book.

Review:

A remarkable blend of entomological and classical scholarship. - Sir Richard Southwood in the Foreword.
an essential reference work for all lepidopterists interested in the nomenclature of the butterflies and moths that they collect and study. - W. G. Tremewan, Entomologist's Gazette
