It is generally accepted that biological invasions have major ecosystem impacts and create new types of interaction between local and exotic species. Azolla spp. invasion caused different interactions between local and exotic species in the northern region of Iran. Diasemiopsis ramburi-alis and Nomophila noctuella are two spilomelinae moths found feeding on Azolla spp.in these regions. They have overlapping feeding periods on Azolla spp. and immature stages would be confused easily. N. noctuella was recorded as a polyphagous and pest species while D. ramburialis had no other reported host plant beside Azolla spp., therefore, distinguishing these species from each other was so important for anyone who was working on Azolla spp. management in these Areas. Behavioral characteristics of both species were studied for five years in the laboratory and natural habitats. The results indicated that despite the similarities between immature stages, there are some distinctive behavioral characteristics that would be useful for primary identification of each species in the field. D. ramburialis larvae constructed well-shaped and strong shelters, and produced more silken webs and remained in the shelter most of the time. In addition pupation occurs near the feeding site in this species. N. noctuella larvae have wandering behavior and prefer to move in margins , therefore in this species, pupation occurs far from the feeding site. These results indicated that D. ramburialis is more adapted to feed Azolla spp. and Azolla spp. are main host plants for this species while N. noctuella chose them randomly.

The Spilomelinae Guinée, 1854 (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) is known as the largest subfamily of the Pyraloidea with a wide distribution in the tropical and temperate zones. In the present study, new taxonomic and faunistic results on this subfamily are presented on the basis of material sampled in the southwestern province Dhofar of Oman. In Dhofar three zoogeographical zones intersect, namely the Palearctic, Oriental and Afrotropical zones, with the Afrotropical fauna elements in the majority. The specimens of the sample are attributed to three species of three different genera, namely Herpetogramma, Lederer, 1883 (n=2), Notarcha, Meyrick, 1884 (n=2) and Glyphodes, Meyrick, 1884 (n=2) on the basis of external and genital-morphological characters. The specimens attributed to the genus Herpetogramma, Lederer, 1883 are assigned to a species group known as LBJ (Little Brown Jobs), the species of which are distinguishable by genital-morphological features exclusively. The specimens attributed to the genus Notarcha, Meyrick, 1884 revealed to be very close in wing pattern features to the Notarcha quaternalis Zeller, 1832 species complex. Comparison of the male genitalia of each of the sub-samples with the species of the respective subgroups revealed significant differences, which result in the descriptions of the new species Herpetogramma debilis Seizmair, sp. nov. and Notarcha viridalis Seizmair, sp. nov. The presence of the genus Notarcha, Meyrick, 1884 is reported as new to the entomofauna of the Arabian Peninsula. The specimens attributed to the genus Glyphodes, Meyrick, 1884 differ significantly in external characters from a sample of seven species with similar forewing longitudinal line patterns. Among the species of this cluster Glyphodes onychinalis Guenée, 1854 is genital-morphologically very close to the specimens of the sample collected. The latter species and the specimens of the sample share the shape of the uncus and the structure of the corpus bursae wall, yet differ significantly in the structure of the valva. These differences result in the description of the new species Glyphodes leucomesalis Seizmair, sp.nov.

Diaphania costata (Fabricius) (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) is a leaffolder on Apocynaceae in the Neotropics and the southeastern United States. Adult moths photographed or captured at light in the United States have been commonly misidentified, and the species’ Nearctic distribution has been poorly documented. We provide diagnostic characters for larval and adult stages, compare it to related Old World taxa, and describe the damage to ornamental Vinca L. The species is not restricted to Texas but occurs as far east as the Atlantic Coast and as far north as Virginia. Specimens collected in daily surveys over many years indicate that the range of D. costata spread naturally from Louisiana and Texas from the 1980s into the 2000s.

In the traditional biogeographic model, the Galápagos Islands appeared a few million years ago in a sea where no other islands existed and were colonized from areas outside the region. However, recent work has shown that the Galápagos hotspot is 139 million years old (Early Cretaceous), and so groups are likely to have survived at the hotspot by dispersal of populations onto new islands from older ones. This process of metapopulation dynamics means that species can persist indefinitely in an oceanic region, as long as new islands are being produced. Metapopulations can also undergo vicariance into two metapopulations, for example at active island arcs that are rifted by transform faults. We reviewed the geographic relationships of Galápagos groups and found 10 biogeographic patterns that are shared by at least two groups. Each of the patterns coincides spatially with a major tectonic structure; these structures include: the East Pacific Rise; west Pacific and American subduction zones; large igneous plateaus in the Pacific; Alisitos terrane (Baja California), Guerrero terrane (western Mexico); rifting of North and South America; formation of the Caribbean Plateau by the Galápagos hotspot, and its eastward movement; accretion of Galápagos hotspot tracks; Andean uplift; and displacement on the Romeral fault system. All these geological features were active in the Cretaceous, suggesting that geological change at that time caused vicariance in widespread ancestors. The present distributions are explicable if ancestors survived as metapopulations occupying both the Galápagos hotspot and other regions before differentiating, more or less in situ.
Data

A list of 437 primary type specimens found to have been deposited in the "Muséum d'histoire naturelle de Genève" Geneva (MHNG), to date (13.v.2019), is presented. Thirty-seven families of Lepidoptera are represented by primary type specimens, the most diversified being the Noctuidae (96), Pyralidae sensu lato (82), and Erebidae (41). Sixty-seven of the names (15.3%) for which these 437 primary types form the basis are now synonyms, 105 (24.0%) are used in other combinations, and 265 (60.6%) remain as in the original combinations. Sixty-seven authors were responsible for the descriptions of the corresponding taxa, the most prolific being Joseph de Joannis (1864-1932; 56 taxa), Jacques Plante (1920-2003; 54 taxa), and Bernard Landry (1962-; 50 taxa). The oldest taxa for which the MHNG holds type specimens were described by Achille Guenée (1809-1880) in 1872. The most prolific decades in terms of taxonomic descriptions for which the primary types are deposited in the MHNG are the 1920s, with 80 taxa and the 1990s with 74 taxa, followed by the 1930s with 61 taxa. The Afrotropical region, with 40.3% of the taxa and the Palearctic region with 27.7% are the best represented, followed by the Neotropical (23.8%), the Oriental (7.3%), and the Australasian (0.9%) regions; none of the MHNG primary types are from the Nearctic region.

http://digitalcommons.unl.edu/insectamundi/1091/ This catalogue comprises records of 355 species of moths (non-papilionoid Lepidoptera) from Tobago, of which 15 are partially identified. Of this total, all except 17 (5%) are known from Trinidad, although not all these records from Trinidad are published yet. Of these 17, eleven are expected to occur in Trinidad as they also occur on the mainland of South America and two are only known from Tobago but will probably also occur in Trinidad. This leaves just four species (1% of the total) that are known from the Lesser Antilles and are currently not known from further south than Tobago. The families represented by the most species are Erebidae, Crambidae, Geometridae, Noctuidae and Sphingidae, which between them account for 73% of records. Taxonomic changes are made as follows. Podalia farmbri (Kaye, 1925) sp. rev. (Megalopygidae) is removed from the synonymy of P. nigrescens Schaus, 1905. Podalia walkeri Hopp, 1935 and P. dimidiata (Walker, 1865) are syn. nov. of P. farmbri Kaye, 1925. Renia bipunctata (Kaye, 1901) (Erebidae) is a comb. nov. for Zanclognatha bipunctata. Aristaria trinitalis Schaus, 1906 (Erebidae) is a syn. nov. of Renia bipunctata Kaye, 1901. Aglaonice deldonalis Walker, 1859 sp. rev. (Erebidae) is removed from the synonymy of A. hirtipalpis Walker, [1859]. Plusiodonta cupristria Kaye, 1923 (Erebidae) is a syn. nov. of Oraesia excitans Walker [1858]. Oroscopa abluta (Schaus, 1912) (Erebidae) is a comb. nov. for Freilla abluta Schaus, 1912, which is a new combination in common use, but not previously published. Ptichodis dorsalis (Fabricius, 1797) (Erebidae) is a comb. nov. for Noctua auct. dorsalis Fabricius, a new combination already in use, but not formally published. I endorse the unpublished conclusion of I.W.B. Nye that Ptichodis basilans (Guenée, 1852) is a syn. nov. of Ptichodis dorsalis (Fabricius, 1797). Ptichodis agrapta Hampson, 1913 is also a syn. nov. of Ptichodis dorsalis (Fabricius, 1797). Este catálogo incluye registros de 355 especies de polillas de Tobago, de las cuales 15 han sido parcialmente identificadas. Del total de especies, sólo 17 (5%) no se han identificado en Trinidad, aunque no todos estos registros han sido publicados todavía. De estas 17 especies, once se espera que estén presentes en Trinidad ya que también ocurren en tierra firme en Sudamérica y tan sólo dos se ha identificado en Tobago pero es probable que también esté presente en Trinidad. De tal modo, tan sólo cuatro especies (1% del total) que ocurren en las Antillas Menores no se han identificado más al sur de Tobago. Las familias más representadas son Erebidae, Crambidae, Geometridae, Noctuidae and Sphingidae, correspondiendo al 73% de los registros. Se realizan los siguientes cambios taxonómicos. Podalia farmbri (Kaye, 1925) sp. rev. (Megalopygidae) se elimna como sinónimo de P. nigrescens Schaus, 1905. Podalia walkeri Hopp, 1935 y P. dimidiata (Walker, 1865) son syn. nov. de P. farmbri Kaye, 1925. Renia bipunctata (Kaye, 1901) (Erebidae) es una comb. nov. para Zanclognatha bipunctata. Aristaria trinitalis Schaus, 1906 (Erebidae) es un syn. nov. de Renia bipunctata Kaye, 1901. Aglaonice deldonalis Walker, 1859 sp. rev. (Erebidae) se elimina como sinónimo de A. hirtipalpis Walker, [1859]. Plusiodonta cupristria Kaye, 1923 (Erebidae) es un syn. nov. de Oraesia excitans Walker [1858]. Oroscopa abluta (Schaus, 1912) (Erebidae) es un comb. nov. para Freilla abluta Schaus, 1912, la cual es una combinación nueva de uso común, pero que no ha sido publicada anteriormente. Ptichodis dorsalis (Fabricius, 1797) (Erebidae) es una comb. nov. para Noctua auct. dorsalis Fabricius, una nueva combinación ya en uso pero que no se ha publicado formalmente. Apoyo la conclusion no publicada de I.W.B. Nye afirmando que Ptichodis basilans (Guenée, 1852) es un syn. nov. de Ptichodis dorsalis (Fabricius, 1797). Ptichodis agrapta Hampson, 1913 es también un syn. nov. de Ptichodis dorsalis (Fabricius, 1797).
