Olethreutine Moths of Australia by Marianne Horak

Book Description

Olethreutine moths often have fruit-boring larvae and this economically important group includes many horticultural pests such as codling moths, Oriental fruit moths and macadamia nut borers. This volume is the first reference to describe the 90 olethreutine genera present in Australia. It provides generic definitions, a key to genera, generic descriptions, and illustrations of adults, heads, venation, genitalia of both sexes and other diagnostic structures of all genera. Summaries of biology and distribution and a checklist for all named Australian species are given for each genus. Importantly, it includes a comprehensive reorganisation of olethreutine classification, based on generic revisions, with a worldwide impact. The volume contains copious illustrations (two species per genus where possible) to convey generic concepts, and to allow identification of this economically important group. Nearly all olethreutine genera present in Australia extend into Asia and beyond, so the book will be relevant to horticultural pests throughout Asia, and crucial to an understanding of olethreutine evolution worldwide. The diverse Australian olethreutine fauna is particularly rich in enarmoniine and grapholitine genera, several new to science and adding significantly to the concepts of these two tribes. Given the wealth of biological information, the book will be important for ecological work on phytophagous insects well beyond Australia.

Author Biography - Marianne Horak

Marianne Horak is curator of Lepidoptera at the Australian National Insect Collection at CSIRO Entomology, Canberra, with taxonomy, biology and phylogeny of tortricid and phycitine moths her research focus. She is one of the leading experts on tortricid moths, and her involvement with the group started with her PhD work at the ETH in Zurich, Switzerland. Studies on the Papuan and Indonesian fauna provided the necessary basis to revise the Australian olethreutine fauna.
