THE EPIPLEMIDÆ THE LOWEST BOMBYCIDES

Harrison G. Dyar
1898 Canadian Entomologist  
The Epiplemidæ are a family of moths fairly well represented in India. (see Hahpson's Moths of India, III., 121.) Only one larva is known, that ofEpiplema latifasciata, Moore, and unfortunately the figure is insufficient to show more than that the feet are normal five abdominal pairs, and the setæ probably single. The family occurs also sparingly in America. Hulst lits three genera as a subfamily of Geometridæ the Strophidiinæ (Trans. Am. Ent. Soc. XXIII., 309); but I would certainly prefer
more » ... ertainly prefer Hampson's treatment, both as to the name and rank of the group.
