'...the virtues of this book lie in terms of its quality and its extreme usefulness to students and researchers...' James S. Miller, Journal of the New York Entomological Society, 1991. 'This is a wonderful book, packed with invaluable information, much of it original, it is extensively illustrated and beautifully written.' Malcolm J. Scoble, Journal of National History, 1991. '...the book succeeds at three levels - as an illustrated guide to moths [in] Australia; as an introduction to moths in general, and as a detailed description of a modern classification to family [...] of the vast Australian moth fauna.'
