Description - Heliothine Moths of Australia by Marcus Matthews

Heliothine moths are agricultural pests worldwide, attacking many food and fibre crops and costing billions of dollars each year in crop damage and control measures. This text is a base-line resource into Helicoverpa/Heliothis control methods. General, concise summaries of the agricultural importance of heliothines, their biology, systematics, and morphology are given. An up-to-date summary of heliothine phylogeny - based on morphological and molecular information - provides a framework for organizing and interpreting biological information about all heliothine moths and has worldwide relevance. The 38 Australian heliothine species are detailed with identification information an d individual species treatments. All species are illustrated. Nomenclatural information of interest to taxonomists appears in an appendix, and includes full checklist and detailed information of type specimens. The Cd-Rom contains a database of all 14,800 Australian heliothine specimens examined. It also carries nomenclatural information suitable for loading into bioinformatics packages, and images of type specimens.
