The Murcia Region (Southeastern Iberian Peninsula) has a great diversity of Lepidopteran fauna, as a zoogeographical crossroads and biodiversity hotspot. A list of Crambidae moths (Lepidoptera: Pyraloidea) is synthesised based on an examination of museum specimens, published records and new samples. In total, 9 subfamilies, Acentropinae, Crambinae, Cybalomiinae, Evergestinae, Scopariinae, Glaphyriinae, Odontiinae, Pyraustinae and Spilomeninae, 50 genera and 106 species have been recorded of which forty nine species are newly recorded for the Murcia region.
The data in this checklist resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 115 records.
1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
