Volume 5 of a collection of 6 volumes wich cover most of the moths of Europe.
This guide book covers exclusively moths traditionally classified in the Noctuidae family encountered in Europe and its neighbouring regions. Here the contemporary classification is adopted. Four families are featured: Noctuidae, Euteliidae, Nolidae and Erebidae. The Erebidae now include some moths formerly placed in separate families but downgraded to subfamily level, as what are now the Arctiinae and Lymantriinae. These two were dealt with in Volume 1 of this guide-book series and for details on them I invite the reader to refer to that book.
More than 1000 species are illustrated and described in detail, with special focus on their possible variations. Their biology is also highlighted (food plants, biotopes they frequent, their usual flight-times and distribution). Also, the status of some taxa has been revised. Where accurate identification is especially difficult, photos of genitalia of both sexes are shown.
Distribution maps are given for the majority of the species featured.
