Abstract


CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF LEPIDOPTERA IN SOUTHERN ITALY: v. H et erocera: Noctuidae

By this work the author communicates the data about Noctuidae he has got during his research campaigns the aim of which was a wider knowledge of the Lepidopterofauna of Southern Italy.

In twelve years 360 species have been collected and together with them this work lists also the 42 taxa which are cited in literature as living in Southern Italy even if they have never been collected in the places where researches have been carried out.

Altogether 402 species of Noctuidae have been listed but three of them: Episema tersa D. & S., Allophyes protai Brsn. and Conistra veronicae Hb. are to be wiped out because they have been replaced by: Episema glaucina Esp., Allophyes parenzani De Laever and Conistra camastra De Laever , respectively.

Among the 399 listed species 128 have been cited for the first time in South-Italy; they are added to the 20 new species the author has already pointed out (1976 and 1977 a) and to the two species described by E. DE LAEVER (Allophyes parenzani D. L. and Conistra camastra D. L.) after specimens collected in Apulia and Basilicata .

Con questo quinto contributo vengono resi noti i dati acquisiti sulla fa- miglia dei Nottuidi, nel corso delle ricerche condotte a partire dal 1966 allo scopo di approfondire le conoscenze sulla composizione e distribuzione della Lepidotterofauna in Puglia e Basilicata.
