|Important Note in Advance
It is strongly recommended that the internet “publications” presented here within this website are not cited in real publications (in printed journals or books), because these web pages are often changed and may be subject to cancellation without prior announcement.
Listing any reference within a printed publication has one aim only:
To allow the reader to refer to the earlier publication by himself personally (by looking up this reference in a library, for example).When the referred “publication” is changed or cancelled in between, the reference may at best be misleading — often a website will be changed regularly and shortly, and any website will not last longer than a few years anyway.
Referring to a source which is no longer existing in its original form (or at all) is, therefore, just the opposite of what responsible and serious authors of printed scientific publications are supposed to do.
addition, the rules of the Code
clearly restrict the validity of internet publications (or any other kind
of electronic publishing) for systematic purposes.
material here is primarily intended for two purposes:
We will not publish any new taxa or other relevant information within this website before it is published in print!
In case that we show a change in taxonomic matters (status change or such) here, this is not to be treated as validly published; it it only informal and to promote scientific discussion!
Any groupings aside from those levels strictly defined by the ICZN (1985, 1999), i.e. subspecies, species, superspecies, subgenera, genera, subtribes, tribes, subfamilies, families or superfamilies, are only used on an informal level within this website, without attempting to create new (or change existing) such categories.

The following pages will mainly deal with checklists of
Saturniidae from different areas of SE Asia. These lists were published
by different authors and are presented here with some additions of more
recent studies (but see above). — Also, the HSS
Sumatrana Society) is introduced.
|Another subject of the “Saturniidae Research” pages is to present new species of Saturniidae published during recent years, with a short description, copies of the illustrations and some further information.|
