Regional Faunas

1: The Saturniidae of the Philippines
W. A. Nässig & C. G. Treadaway: The Saturniidae (Lepidoptera) of the Philippines
Nachrichten des Entomologischen Vereins Apollo, Frankfurt am Main (Germany), Suppl. 17: 223–424, 19 col. pls., 21. b&w pls, many text illustrations, 16 distribution maps.

Abstract:  23 species of Saturniidae are reported for the Philippine Islands (a checklist is provided on p. 231). 2 new species and 4 new subspecies are described: Antheraea (Antheraeopsis) paniki n. sp. (widespread endemic on the Philippines), Antheraea (Antheraeopsis) paniki sahi n. ssp. (endemic on Palawan), Antheraea (Antheraea) rosieri imeldae n. ssp. (endemic on Palawan), Antheraea (Antheraea) semperi noeli n. ssp. (endemic on Mindoro), Antheraea (Antheraea) gulata n. sp. (endemic in the Palawan region), Antheraea (Antheraea) gschwandneri zwicki n. ssp. (endemic on Palawan). The holotypes are deposited in the Treadaway collection which is assigned to Senckenberg-Museum, or in the Nässig collection in Senckenberg-Museum, Frankfurt am Main. The lectotype of Antheraea semperi C. & R. Felder, 1861 is designated (in BMNH, London). Antheraea (Antheraeopsis) youngi Watson, 1915 is interpreted as a separate Sundaland species (stat. rev.). All species are described and discussed. 13 colour plates are included which illustrate each species with examples of some of the possible variation; further 6 colour plates illustrate preimaginal instars. Maps illustrating the distribution of the taxa on the Philippines are provided, as well as illustrations of the genitalia. Tables have been added to show the degree of endemicity as well as the total number of species per island and per zoogeographical region. Mindanao (14) and Luzon (12) are the islands from which the largest number of autochthonous Saturniidae species is known, followed by Palawan and Leyte (10), Negros and Mindoro (9).

2: The Brahmaeidae of the Philippines

W. A. Nässig & C. G. Treadaway: Brahmaeidae (Lepidoptera) of the Philippines
Nachrichten des Entomologischen Vereins Apollo, Frankfurt am Main (Germany), Suppl. 17: 223–424, 19 col. pls., 21. b&w pls, many text illustrations, 16 distribution maps.

Abstract:
Based on 106 specimens of Brahmaea hearseyi ardjoeno Kalis, 1934, from 5 islands of the Philippines, information about imaginal morphology, phenology, distribution and other observations on the species are given.
The species is known so far from the islands Luzon, Mindoro, Panay, Negros, and Mindanao.
The preimaginal stages are not known from the Philippines. B. hearseyi ardjoeno is the only species of the family on the Philippines.
The taxonomic and phylogenetic status of the Philippinian populations will require further studies; there is a considerable amount of individual and also geographical variability.
Both sexes from some of the islands and the genitalia are illustrated.

3: The Saturniidae of Sumatra
Heterocera Sumatrana Vol. 10, 23 KB W. A. Nässig, R. E. J. Lampe & S. Kager (1996): The Saturniidae of Sumatra (Lepidoptera) [with two appendices]
Heterocera Sumatrana, Göttingen (Germany), vol. 10: 3–110, 15 col. pls., 7 b&w pls. 

Abstract:  The fauna of Saturniidae (Lepidoptera) of the Indonesian island of Sumatra and surrounding smaller islands is described. 24 species are known, a check-list (with page numbers) of the species can be found on page 21. In addition, Antheraea (Antheraea) billitonensis Moore, 1878 is listed for the island of Belitung. The work is based on the extensive collecting of E. W. Diehl and other members of the HSS, as well as on literature records and some museum and private collections.
The lectotype of Attacus staudingeri Rothschild, 1895 is designated, deposited in Zoologisches Museum der Humboldt-Universität, Berlin. All other taxonomic changes which became necessary during the preparation of the present work were published in advance elsewhere.

All species of Saturniidae known from Sumatra thus far belong to the subfamily Saturniinae. The tribe Attacini is represented by three genera with one species each: Attacus Linnaeus, 1767, Archaeoattacus Watson, 1914, and Samia Hübner, [1819]. The tribe Saturniini is represented by two species of Actias Leach, 1815, three species of Cricula Walker, 1855, eleven (plus one from Belitung) species of Antheraea Hübner, [1819], three species of Loepa Moore, [1860], and two species of Lemaireia Nässig & Holloway, 1987.
In Appendix I, all information about the preimaginal morphology and life-histories of Sumatran Saturniidae is compiled. The Appendix has a separate abstract. A systematic index is provided.
The literature references for both the main text and Appendix I are combined at the end of Appendix I.

Appendix I: W. A. Nässig, R. E. J. Lampe & S. Kager: The preimaginal instars of some Sumatran and South East Asian species of Saturniidae, including general notes on the genus Antheraea (Lepidoptera).

4: The Brahmaeidae of Sumatra
Heterocera Sumatrana Vol. 10, 23 KB W. A. Nässig & U. Paukstadt (1990): The Brahmaeidae of Sumatra (Lepidoptera)
Heterocera Sumatrana, Göttingen (Germany), vol. 6: 117–136, 2 col. pls., 3 b&w pls. 

Abstract:  General features of the small family Brahmaeidae are given, with a short account on systematics and basic classification of the family.
On Sumatra only one species, Brahmophthalma hearseyi (White, 1862), is known.
The Sumatran population is tentatively assigned to the subspecies ardjoeno Kalis, 1934 (syn. luchti Dupont, 1937 [nec luchli, misspelling]; both taxa described from Java, type specimens evidently lost).
Further studies with more material (especially from Java) on the status of the different populations are necessary.
The imagines are figured in colour. Genitalia morphology and all preimaginal instars are described and figured, the latter in colour. Locality data and phenology on Sumatra is documented.
