The taxonomic names and classification provided are based on current published literature and almost certainly contain errors of combination and synonymies despite our best efforts as most of the Indian insects are poorly known. Some names have been checked based on online resources such as ScaleNet, LepIndex, and so on.

The images featured here are the property of the NBAIR and are primarily for use only as identification aids. Please give a hyperlink to the images in your site, but do not use them elsewhere without our permission.

Finally, a word of caution to the users: the images are meant as basic guides to identification and not as stand alone identification aids unless used in conjunction with morphological characters.
