This guide is about “microlepidoptera”, so named because of their small size and traditionally classified in the families Micropterigidae to Tortricidae.
Given the importance of the subject, the microlepidoptera section will comprise two volumes.
In practice, this volume presents more than thirty families that were not studied in previous volumes of the collection.
This book on Moths is the seventh volume of the ‘Moths of Europe’ collection, which will comprise a total of eight volumes and cover the majority of the heteroceran Lepidoptera found in Europe. It is the first of two volumes dedicated to microlepidoptera..
