Catalogue of the Pterophoroidea of the World
This digital catalogue for the Pterophoroidea of the world is derived from C. Gielis (2003) Pterophoroidea & Alucitoidea (Lepidoptera) (World Catalogue of Insects, volume 4), as subsequently maintained and updated by Cees Gielis. The data have been curated for inclusion in the Catalogue of Life and updated by Donald Hobern.Version 1.1 has been updated to correct a number of errors in processing of Cees Gielis' original dataset and to reflect recent additions to the group. Additional page references have also been added.The Macropiratidae are included here (as in Gielis, 2003) as a sister family to the Pterophoridae. This is not supported by recent research, but no proposed alternative position has yet been published.
