About this title


Elachistine moths are the world’s most species-rich group of Lepidoptera that specialize on monocotyledon plants, especially grasses and sedges. This volume is the first reference to describe the so-far unknown diversity of these leaf-mining moths in Australia.

It provides a new generic classification for the group on a worldwide basis, and describes in detail the genera and species that occur in Australia. Keys to genera and species, as well as generic, subgeneric and species group descriptions are given, richly supplied with illustrations of larvae, pupae and adult moths. In addition, the external appearance and the male and female genitalia of all species are described.

The volume contains redescriptions of all 11 previously named valid species, and descriptions of no less than 137 species new to science, of which 128 are formally named, increasing the known species richness of Australian Elachistinae by more than an order of magnitude.

About the Author:

His research focus is systematics of Lepidoptera, from species taxonomy to classification of the order of Lepidoptera as a whole. His main interest is in the superfamily Gelechioidea, and he is the leading world authority of the Elachistinae.
