Description:

This new series embraces an inventory of the Heterocera of Continental Africa, including the Mediterranean northern part, and its adjacent islands, including Madagascar. The books will be the result of broadly based studies of museum holdings and all available public and private collections during the last decades. As far as possible, specific identification will be based on the study and evaluation of the type specimens. Most species will be illustrated in colour, including male and female genitalia, and there will be other important information to give a strong foundation for accurate determination. The review of all available African and Madagascan Boletobiinae taxa covers more than 675 species distributed over 4 tribes and numerous genera. Special emphasis is given to descriptions and coloured illustrations, and of genitalia features. Male and female genitalia of nearly all species are illustrated, and in some cases distribution maps are provided. For a number of taxonomically difficult groups, dendrograms show the molecular genetic distance between species in comparison. All species are illustrated in colour and it is hoped that these illustrations alone can serve as a source for the identification of superficially identifiable species. If known, also habitat preference and biology are given. All species are arranged in biogeographical categories, according to the definitions of those units at the first setout.

The review of the African Boletobiinae includes descriptions of 4 genera, 266 species and 7 subspecies new to science.
