  • A new species of Anaxyrina Meyrick, A. albicostalis sp. novo (Lepidoptera, Lecithoceridae, Torodorinae) is described from Thailand and the Philippines. The genus has been known only by the type species, A. cyanopa Meyrick from N. India. Image of adult, forewing venation and illustrations of the male genitalia with aedeagus for the new species are provided.

  • This research was carried out three times in the Dongdaesan, the Dongpigol camping area and the Sangwonsa from June 1995 to September 1995 to study insect fauna(Hemiptera, Coleoptera and Lepidoptera) in Odaesan National Pard. Eleven jamilies and 15 species of Hemiptera, 20 families and 40 species of Coleoptera and 11 families and 42 species of Lepidoptera was collected and identified. Among these, 12 species of Hemiptera, the 21 species of Coleoptera and 22 species of Lepidoptera were first reported in Odaesan. Including these first found insects, 8 families and 36 species of Hemiptera, 26 families and 97 species of Coleoptera, 30 families and 274 species of Lepidoptera are reported from Odaesan. The species inventories for Hemiptera, Coleoptera and Lepidotera were made from present study and previous works.

  • Lepidoptera (butterflies) extracts, traditionally employed as medicines, have various biological activities. Five species of Lepidoptera (Papilio maackii, Papilio xuthus, Pieris rapae, Eurema hecabe, and Sasakia charonda) were extracted with distilled water (DW), dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), ethanol (EtOH), and methanol (MeOH). Each extract was analyzed for anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activities using the 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) assay method, the ferric reducing ability of plasma (FRAP) test, and a cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) promoter assay. The results suggest that Lepidoptera extracts have valuable anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, supporting the idea that the extracts may serve as a food biomaterial(s) preventing oxidative processes and inflammatory damage.

  • This research was conducted over a time span of three years, from 2009 to 2011. Twenty-one surveys in total, seven times per year, were done between April and June of each year on major trees on trails around Donghaksa and Gapsa in Mt. Gyeryong National Park in order to identify foodplants of the Lepidoptera larvae and their characteristic appearances. During the survey of Lepidoptera larvae in trees along trails around Donghaksa and Gapsa, 377 individuals and 21 species in 8 families were identified. The 21 species were Alcis angulifera, Cosmia affinis, Libythea celtis, Adoxophyes orana, Amphipyra monolitha, Acrodontis fumosa, Xylena formosa, Ptycholoma lecheana circumclusana, Choristoneura adumbratana, Archips capsigeranus, Pandemis cinnamomeana, Rhopobota latipennis, Apochima juglansiaria, Cifuna locuples, Lymantria dispar, Eilema deplana, Rhodinia fugax, Acronicta rumicis, Amphipyra erebina, Favonius saphirinus, and Dravira ulupi. Twenty-one Lepidoptera insect species were identified in 21 species of trees, including Zelkova serrata. Among them, A. angulifera, C. affinis, and L. celtis were found to have the widest range of foodplants. Additionally, it was found that many species of Lepidoptera insects can utilize more species as foodplants according to the chemical substances in the plants and environments in addition to the foodplants noted in the literature. Also, it is thought that more species can be identified with a survey of various woody and herbaceous plants.

  • A notodontid moth, Disparia diluta (Hampson, 1910) is reported for the first time from the Korean peninsula. At the same time, taxonomical note for D. nihonica (Wileman, 1911) is given. The male genitalia of D. nihonica (Wileman) were erroneously illustrated as those of Neodrymonia delia (Leech) by Tshisjakov and Kwon (1999), and Schintlmeister (2008) cited D. nihonica (Wileman) to be distributed in the Korean peninsula, based on the illustration.
