Description

Pug moths, a group of geometrid moths in the genera Eupithecia, Chloroclystis and Gymnoscelis, comprise perhaps the most difficult of the macrolepidoptera to identify with confidence. This work describes the biology and characters of all stages of the 52 species from Britain and Ireland, with individual maps showing their known distribution on a vice-county basis. The larvae are illustrated in detailed black-and-white drawings, and the adults in a series of colour photographs, arranged with species that are superficially similar juxtaposed. The genitalia of every species are also illustrated in figures drawn to show the main diagnostic features. The book also contains introductory sections which include a history of the study of British pugs, and breeding and rearing techniques. Also provided are an extensive bibliography, an appendix of foodplants, a life-history table, and an index with synonymies.

Author Biography

Adrian Riley, formerly a professional lepidopterist at Rothamsted Experimental Station and author of A Natural History of the Butterflies and Moths of Shropshire, and his amateur co-author, Gaston Prior, have made a special study of this group. Their unique and thorough approach will greatly facilitate the identification of pugs and thus encourage their study.
