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



In a previous article (Van den Berg, 1968) attention was given to the male genitalia of a few type-species of the Notodontidae. Earlier work on the Notodontidae emphasized mainly the male genitalia. The female genitalia offer useful characters for identification, and the aim of this study was to provide a key based on these characters for separation of the type-species of the genera occurring in South Africa.
