PREFACE.



THE three families dealt with in the present volume, the
Arctiida, Agaristidte, and Noctuida, are very closely allied
and in some cases difficult to discriminate. The Arctiida may
be distinguished from the Noctuida by vein 8 of the hind wing
anastomosing with vein 7 to the middle of the cell, though a
few of the lower forms of the Noctuida have a similar structure,
especially in the Sarrothripina, which are closely allied to the
Nolince, the lowest subfamily of the ArctiidtSj and almost
grade into them.

The Noctuida are a large family of Moths dominant at the
present day, and consist of several subfamilies and a very large
number of genera and species with such slight diversities of
structure and pattern as to make a satisfactory classification
of them far more difficult than of any other family. The
lowest forms are those of which the larvae have four pairs of
abdominal prolegs, and the perfect insects have vein 5 of the
hind wing fully developed and from the centre of the disco-
cellulars this ancestral form being only found in some
Deltoidirue and Sarrothripinte.

From this type has developed, firstly the subfamilies with
vein 5 of the hind wing fully formed : (1) Deltoidince, (2) Fo-
cillina, (3) Quadrifina, (4) Gonopterina, (5) Stictopterin&j
(6) EuteliirHB, (7) Sarrothripina, (8) Palmdiince; secondly,
the subfamilies which have vein 5 of the hind wing obso-
lescent: (1) Acontiinte, (2) Trifina.

The other family, the Agaristida, is a modification of the
Noctuidte, with the antennae more or less dilated towards the
extremity, and consists of a few genera with gaily coloured
species of diurnal or crepuscular habits.



IV PREFACE.

In this volume, as in the first, Cotes and Swinhoe's Cata-
logue has been of the greatest service, and has saved all the
time and trouble that would, without its help, have been
expended on a preliminary search for references. Every
reference quoted in the present work has been verified
by the Editor from the original publication, a severe test to
apply to a book containing so large a synonymy as Cotes
and Swinhoe's.

No attempt has been made in this or in the preceding
volume to decide finally whether many of the forms
described are entitled to rank as species, varieties, geo-
graphical or seasonal forms. Much more study of
structure, and especially of the claspers of the male
insect, will be needed before similar questions can be
satisfactorily determined. The main object of the present
work is to enable students to identify and classify the
various forms, and thus to establish a workable basis for
further enquiry as to their relations to each other. With
this end in view, the plan adopted has been to unite under
one specific heading those forms having close affinities in
pattern and colour, merely noting their differences, whilst
forms having a more remote relationship receive comparative,
and those still more distantly related non-comparative,
descriptions. In the same way groups of forms nearly
allied in structure constitute sections of genera, others more
remotely related form genera, subfamilies, &c.

Two subfamilies of Noctuida, the Focillina and Deltoidina,
are not included in this volume, but will be placed at the
commencement of the next, which will also contain the
families Epicopiida, Uraniida, Epiplemidte, and Geometridte.
A considerable portion of the next or third volume is ready
for printing, and the whole will, it is hoped, be concluded
in the course of the year.
