oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - A comparative morphological study of the male external genitalia of the type-species of some South African Notodontidae (Lepidoptera)

Volume 31, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



Earlier work on the Notodontidae in South Africa was restricted to a systematic account of the family, with descriptionptions of new genera and species (Janse, 1920), and a short article on the larvae of some species (Taylor, 1953). The morphology of the genitalia have not received attention in South Africa, though earlier workers such as Chapman (1911), Eyer (1956) and McDonnough (1911) have studied the male genitalia elsewhere.
